I'm not sure what inconsistencies you are speaking about,
but perhaps your observations are related to third-party
cookies from sites that are not P3P-compliant. I believe IE
requires (by default) P3P compliance from third-party sites
wishing to set a cookie.

Maybe that helps explain something.

I am not sure what inconsistency you are noting with IE and
form variables, but I expect that you will ultimately
identify something in your code rather than in the browser.
If you can reproduce your problem in a very small script
that demonstrates the problem, we can probably help more.
