Another article [zdnet.com] on IE6 implementing the P3P privacy standard. While this is written with banners in mind, it may be an issue for larger, multi-domain sites:
"Here's the surprise: Many Web sites, especially complicated ones with third-party content provided by their affiliates, may discover that they are third parties on their own sites,"

For instance, I serve banners from one domain on others in my network and use cookies to rotate and break cache. Apparently, this is going to be a problem under P3P.

I created a new separate thread about the technical aspects of P3P [webmasterworld.com]. To organize the discussion, let's continue to discuss the user interface and IE 6 aspects here, and discuss the implementation of P3P there.

P3P is a W3C standard. IE6 is implementing the standard. There should be other browsers that will also implement it in the future.

Ie6 and its settings.

I am trying to set a third party cookie. I have included the p3p header. There is no personal information being collected, and the policy reflects this. But, when I set ie6 to medium high, it lets me set the cookie. If I set the privacy level to high, it gets blocked. Are there no third party cookied allowed to be set if high setting is used for privacy with ie6.
Any ideas?
