Hi,
   I was wondering what is the exact flow of messages in case the policy
reference file is not in its correct location and is instead specified by
the policyref header in HTTP. Here is what I got, please let me know your
comments on this.

1) GET /w3c/p3p.xml HTTP1.1
  Host : www.hp.com
  Accept:*/*
2) HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
   P3P: policyref=http://www.hp.com/P3P/PolicyReferences.xml
   .............
3)
GET /P3P/PolicyReferences.xml HTTP1.1
Host : www.hp.com
4) Recieve Policy Reference file
http://www.hp.com/P3P/PolicyReferences.xml
5) Request P3P Policy file
GET /w3c/policy1.xml HTTP1.1
Host : www.hp.com
6) Send  P3P policy file
http://www.hp.com/w3c/policy1.xml
*******Now the normal message exchange proceeds*********
7) GET /index.html HTTP1.1
Host : www.hp.com
Accept:*/*

What happens to the flow in case link tag is used ....

Regards,
Ravi
