This tag won't remove the cookie, only set it to the empty string, or what is specified in the value attribute and change it's expire-time to a date that already has occured. This is unfortunutaly the only way as there is no command in HTTP for removing cookies. We have to give a hint to the browser and let it remove the cookie.
