Internet Explorer 7. The Channel Definition Format (CDF) is obsolete and should not be used.

Only ITEMs in the same domain as the CDF file can be logged. This is to prevent providers from tracking the client's use of other provider's sites.

Note that this element is also valid for a CDF file being used as an Microsoft Active Desktop item (< USAGE  VALUE=" DesktopComponent"></ USAGE>).


Each time the ITEM in the following example is viewed, its URL will be recorded in the page-hit log file.

<ITEM  HREF="http://www.joyware.tld/promo.htm">
    <LOG VALUE="document:view"/>
