It was put there by your code. You are using PHP with sessions. That
is how PHP deals with sessions when cookies are not accepted by the
client.

The PHP manual even tells you how to fix it (why they don't have the
fix as the default setting I have no idea).

http://uk.php.net/manual/en/ref.session.php

(Search (Ctrl+F probably, but it depends on your browser) for "For
full XHTML" to find the section that explains the fix. The explanation
is rubbish, it applies equally to HTML as XHTML and the use of the
word "full" is redundent).

(Please send responses to the mailing list, not my private email
box. Thank-you).
