Hope you don't mind me re-posting this query. Just wondering if I need
to write each <EXCLUDE> tag separately (as pictured below) for each excluded directory ... or is their a "shorthand" way of doing this separating each dir by delimiters and including all in one <EXCLUDE></EXCLUDE> tag?

> Am putting together a P3P Policy for a client and haven't worked in XML before. I'd like to write multiple EXCLUDE statements and am wondering if I need to put an open and close tag for each directory I want to exclude, as follows:

>       <INCLUDE>/*</INCLUDE>
>       <EXCLUDE>/bubbleforms*</EXCLUDE>
>       <EXCLUDE>/cgi-bin*</EXCLUDE>

>       <EXCLUDE>/files*</EXCLUDE>
>       <EXCLUDE>/zip*</EXCLUDE>
> Or, can I write it another way?
