Warranty info via SOAP API is certainly good news. But there is another
problem with the recent changes on support.dell.com: It is no longer
possible for external scripts etc. that create HTML output to
automatically link to the warranty page for a specific server. This is
because the service tag is no longer collected using an URL parameter
but rather with javascript.

Does anybody know of a way to pass the service tag via an HTML link to
support.dell.com so that the browser gets directly to the warranty info
page for the specific server?
