Hi

"Note that policies are applied at the level of HTTP entities. An entity,
retrieved by fetching a URI, has a P3P policy associated with it. A "page"
from the user's perspective may be composed of multiple HTTP entities; each
entity may have its own P3P policy associated with it. As a practical note,
however, placing many different P3P policies on different entities on a
single page may make rendering the page and informing the user of the
relevant policies difficult for user agents. Additionally, services SHOULD
attempt to craft their policy reference files such that a single policy
reference file covers any given "page"; this will speed up the user's
browsing experience. "

What do you mean exactly by HTTP entities ?
( For instance, when an HTTP request send more than one HTML File as for
FrameSet HTML Page )
( Or http://www.cbf.com/test.htm#start and http://www.cbf.com/test.htm#end
is two differents entities
   and i should take care of that when the HTTP request is
http://www.cbf.com / )

Thanks in advance.
