Okay - so I'm looking around for a whole bunch of automated Accessibility testers, as I've found that some miss certain things (I missed them too).

And on one of them, I got an Error as it couldn't find the P3P file!
So... I'm sat there "chimping".
[Pursing my lips, blowing out air whislt scratching my head going "ugh"]

I've looked it up - P3P is, in short, a Privacy Policy file (xml) that details what information your site looks at and stores.
P3P Compliant Browsers can retrieve the file, check it against the user preferences, and if needed, take actions agaisnt non-compliant aspects (such as rejecting tracking cookies etc.).

Its been around since 2002, by the W3C.

I've never, not once, ever heard or seen anything about it before - have you?
