Denise--

Is the P3P privacy policy available on an external website?
This link probably won't function in most browsers, as the syntax is off:
htttp:.//stagerrb/Default.htm

perhaps something more like this:
http://stagerrb.com/Default.htm
(two 't's vs. three, no '.' before the '//'s, a domain name like '.com')

Also, please make sure that you clear your browser's cache:

Tools --> Internet Options --> General --> Delete Files --> [x] Delete all
offline content

Then close all browser windows, and try the test again.

Hope this helps,

-- jeff

Subject: Syntax Error in Policy


We are using the IBM P3P Generator to create a policy statement and a
reference file.  When we try to view the policy in the IE 6 browser we get
this error message:  "Unable to display the privacy policy of
htttp:.//stagerrb/Default.htm due to a syntax error in its policy."  Can you
identify the problem from this error message?  There are no errors showing
up in the Error tab in the IBM Generator.

Attached is screen print of the 2 files we created, and the error message.
We saved the policy as an xml rather than p3p file because the instructions
said you could do that for web servers that are not configured to recognize
P3P files.  We aren't sure if we are configured for P3P or not.

Please note that the policy statement we created is just for practice to see
if we can generate a policy and is not the one we will actually use.

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.
