Is this true? :

Session variables are tracked whether or not a visitor's browser supports
cookies.  The session id is automatically appeneded to each url on the site
if the user's browser doesn't support cookies.

This represents one of the major differences between setting your own
cookies and using sessions.

Haven't seen this post on PHP newsgroup.  What I mean by that is, let's say
I use the "header("Location: test.php?SID&data=Yes!");".  I now know that I
would have to use the data in the URL.  But for SID, this will apply but I
want to know is, is there any PHP code that will do this behind the scene
without needing to use the URL.  $_COOKIE can do this but I can't use
$_COOKIE because if the user's browser had the cookie disabled, then it
wouldn't do me any good.
