  That or you can actually have your third party domain (even if it's
your domain the browser is thinking that it is a third party domain
since it's not the domain the user actually requested) set a valid P3P
header in HTTP response that it sends back. Since you won't be able to
get every user on the net to edit their IE6 preferences. Is this really
still a Tomcat-User list email discussion though?
