Yes, indeed, you do have to use session_start() on each page you
want to use the session-info. And no, you don't need
session_destroy() when the user closes the browser. The session is
ended automatically then. And btw, how would you detect whether or
not someone has closed his browser?

Hope this was an answer to your question...
