Spyware cookies

Most people I assume know about spyware?
What I was wondering is HOW spyware cookies can relay information to the author/website as they are so small normally only a few kb at most?

Have you ever read the contents of a cookie? Mozilla have a nice option whereby one can see the details - a lot will fit into a few kbs of text.

No sorry I don't use Mozilla.
Can I open up a cookie using (say) wordpad or notepad in XP?
