The most basic claim, claim #1 see http://www.openmarket.com/whatsnew/patents/
or http://www.openmarket.com/whatsnew/patents/780claim.htm
is the session id in what they call the PATH NAME in a UNIFORM RESOURCE LOCATOR.

So presumably storing a session id in the query string part would not be 
covered by the patent.

You know where I'd like to store a session id? 
<PRIOR_ART>
http://username:credential@hostname.com/da/da/da.html
</PRIOR_ART>

If BROWSER CLIENT software would just handle this sort of thing by passing along
a couple extra headers:

GET /da/da/da.html HTTP/1.x
Host: hostname.com
Username: username
Credential: credential

Then it would be very convenient, indeed.
