Intel Carrier Grade Platforms Certified for Sun Solaris

Intel Corporation today announced availability for Sun Microsystems’ Solaris Operating System on Intel-based telecommunications rack and blade servers just months after a broad agreement between the two companies. The systems are carrier grade rack mount servers that are Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) Level 3 and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) compliant, and blades that adhere to the Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA), a series of industry specification standards for next generation carrier grade communications equipment.

The combination of Solaris 10 operating system (OS) on telecommunications servers from Intel increases the choices for service providers and telecommunications equipment manufacturers wishing to keep existing applications and deploy next-generation applications within their preferred operating system environment. The new Intel® Carrier Grade Rack Mount Server TIGW1U is the first Intel carrier grade server shipping today that supports both Linux and Solaris OS. The Intel® NetStructure® MPCBL0050 Single Board Computer (SBC), based on the ATCA architecture will ship in the third quarter of 2007 and also will support both Linux and Solaris OSs.

Some XHTML surprises

I haven't played with raw HTML (or XHTML in this case) in a while. It's been even longer since I did a basic site with frames. Anyway, I discovered that the new XHTML (strict) specs does not allow you to use the "target" element in the HREF tag anymore. So I search around for a solution, and thanks to many people contributing on this topic all over the web, I finally used the advice from sitepoint.com.

Assuming you had the following frame set:

<frameset rows="25%,50%,25%">

<frame name="header" src="header.html">
<frame name="main" src="main.html">
<frame name="footer" src="footer.html">


Normally you would create a link something like this:
<a href="link.html" target="main">click here</a>
Now, depending on the target, our new solution will use a JavaScript piece to handle the "target" in the XHTML code. In your HEAD area, link to a JavaScript file with the following content:

function externalLinks() {
if (!document.getElementsByTagName) return;
var anchors = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
for (var i=0; i<anchors.length; i++) {
var anchor = anchors[i];
if (anchor.getAttribute("href") &&
anchor.getAttribute("rel") == "main")
anchor.target = "main";
if (anchor.getAttribute("href") &&
anchor.getAttribute("rel") == "header")
anchor.target = "header";
if (anchor.getAttribute("href") &&
anchor.getAttribute("rel") == "footer")
anchor.target = "footer";
window.onload = externalLinks;
As you can see from the above code, the "href" element with the "rel" element will be targeted to the appropriate target. So your link will now change to:
<a href="link.html" rel="main">click here</a>

And that's it !
