HTTP Header instead of QueryString

See my similar, yet unanswered question at

To maintain the Client State, you may use a SessionID number in the query string.
There must not be HTML pages in between.

Now I found that at the Client State is maintained (a) without query string, and (b) though there are HTML pages in between.


They are sending a unique HTTP header tag (the SessionID).
(I know how to send a HTTP header tag.)
Seems to be done by manipulating the server, because it obviously works with HTML pages not produced, too.
Could be the same mechanism as client authentification...

I am using ASP on II-Server, but would be glad just to understand the principles.
