Nuts. Chrome somehow manages to translate the MOS link to the correct URL, which is actually along the lines of (semi-stripped):

a href="#" onclick="return false;" class="x239 xfe" id="pt1:r1:0:mr1:iR1:2:gl14"Recommendations For Using CIO/DIO For Filesystems Containing Oracle Files On AIX/a

I've been away from HTML coding too long to recognize the linking technique.  Anyone know if there's a way for Firefox to also unravel the MOS link (e.g. via add-on or user-agent setting)? I can't get Chrome customized to my tastes...


Thanks Mark!
