Subject RE: P3P headers

Hi Joshua,

We are redirecting to other sites we have no control over, who use
our cookies in a 3rd party setting.

Actually I came up with something that seems to work great. Instead
of redirecting the way we were doing, we now output this:

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<HTML><HEAD>\n";
print "<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"Refresh\" CONTENT=\"0; URL=$redirect\">\n";
print "</HEAD></HTML>\n";

And it works great. Thanks so much for your help, it was your input
that helped us fix this problem we were having. You rock, thanks!
