<snip> 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: > > <POLICY-REF about="/p3p/DBpolicy.xml"> > <INCLUDE>/*</INCLUDE> > <COOKIE-INCLUDE/> > <EXCLUDE>/bubbleforms*</EXCLUDE> > <EXCLUDE>/cgi-bin*</EXCLUDE> > <EXCLUDE>/faq*</EXCLUDE> > <EXCLUDE>/files*</EXCLUDE> > <EXCLUDE>/zip*</EXCLUDE> > </snip> Sharon, this is the correct XML format (assuming you'll close the parent element with</POLICY-REF>). There is no "shorthand". Any other format would have to be described in the XML schema, which you can find at http://www.w3.org/TR/P3P/ More P3P info: http://www.w3.org/P3P/details.html There's also an online P3P validator here: http://www.w3.org/P3P/validator.html HTH Andy Hardacker The contents of this e-mail are intended for the named addressee only.
