Kristin, all,

I commented on this exact issue 2 days ago in the IBM P3P editor forum.

We had the exact same problem several weeks ago while re-validating code that
had previously validated just fine and received the same error that you have
described.
After staring at the error for what seemed like an eternity, it dawned on me
that the opening and closing XML tags POLICIES is only needed when
the policy.p3p has multiple groups of POLICY XML tags within the policy.p3p
file. In short if you delete the opening and closing XML tags POLICIES within
policy.p3p your
policy will validate.

I have also pointed out an issue that the LOC param in the compact policy was
not validating when it should. I received a message from Yuichi Koike stating
that this was newly introduced bug in the validator. I believe that the POLICIES
errors that many of us are seeing is also an additional bug or undocumented
change to the W3C validating services.

I would suggest that the W3C validating services, the web developers P3P life
line, have version control applied and link to documentation outlining what
changes have been made and when.

Thanks for reading,

Subject:  P3P Implementation Problems



I recently generated a privacy policy and I am trying to implement it on my
website.  I have stored the reference file as /W3C/p3p.xml and the full
policy as /W3C/policy.xml.  I have even added links within my index page as
suggested.  However when i go to validate my page i get the error :

"/w3c/p3p.xml has some warnings or errors.

Error: The URI fragment identifier (#xxx) is necessary to specify a POLICY
element in a POLICIES element"

Any suggestions?

My reference file is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

 <http://www.1to1.com/w3c/p3p.xml#> - <META
xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/09/P3Pv1">
