How to check if temporary (!) cookies are allowed (under Win2K/WinXP) ?

  1. As well known web sites can set cookies provided that the local user allows it in the OS/browser settings.
    But how can I distinguish between permanent and temporary cookies (under Win2000/WinXP) ?
    I would like to allow temporary cookies but disallow permanent ones.

    Temp cookies are "session" cookies in IE. Internet Options, Privacy
    tab, Advanced button, Accept first-party cookies, Block third-party
    cookies, check the box Always allow session cookies.
