Subject Re: REPOST: NEED HELP URGENT:: internet explorer nullifies session on open new window
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2001 17:09:15 GMT
P3P = Platform for Privacy Preferences
W3C spec for what sites do with your personal info.

IIRC, default option for IE6 will not accept cookies (other that session
scope ones) if a site does not have a P3P descriptor on your site.
Obviously this can be changed, but since most IE users never get round to
changing the default preferences...

More info on setting your site to be P3P compliant:
http://www.w3.org/P3P/usep3p.html
