Hi, the faq and user manuals for privoxy refer to content cookies,
specically in the faq:
"Content cookies" (those that are embedded in the actual HTML or JS page
content, see filter), in an SSL
transaction will be impossible to block under these conditions.
Fortunately, this does not seem to be a very common scenario since most
cookies come by traditional means.
did a search but rather surprised not to find an explanation. I guess
that JS can read/set cookies within the browser so that's probably a
content cookie (is that right?) but .. a cookie embedded in actual HTML?
How does that work? I thought the only other place they could be was in
headers. Could someone give an example, I'd really appreciate it.

Seems like a prixovy-specific term.

<p onclick="document.cookie='foo=bar';">
