        There is a feature in HTTP called "content negotiation" which is 
intended to solve this. The solution is to use a single URL for the 
policy. Create multiple policy files on your Webserver, one for each 
language. Then get your Webserver to inspect the client's language 
preference and send back the best fit for them. 
        How you do this varies from Webserver to Webserver. The Apache 
documentation for content negotiation can be found at

        Subject:        P3P deployment in multiple languages

I want to deploy P3P on our webservers, but seem to have an issue with 
multiple languages.
Specifically, it seems that the webserver can only point to 1 P3P xml 
file, not one per language - meaning that country sites with multiple 
languages are only able to have one version across the whole site.

Is this correct? Are there any work arounds for this that you know of?

All help and comment appreciated.
