on my DH site when I start a new session in IE using session_start(); all my links are surfixed with ?PHPSESSID=.[/quote]
Cookie troubles. Somewhere along your travels IE has gotten flaky with cookies, either in its native security setup or via some sort of security add-on/toolbar and it’s not setting the cookie on the initial load. Reset the security so your URL is a “trusted” site and/or remove any add-on/toolbar software.
Basically, I wouldn’t worry too much about it if I was you. The average IE user (…based on the fact they use IE for anything other than MS Windows Update downloads) isn’t really very concerned with what appears in the URL indicator anyways.
