     Can you elaborate on what you mean regarding the EDS inside a server-side generated page?
I am using the javascript and the links work when I select them through the IDP selector page. The EDS is inside a server (IIS 6).

It's orthogonal. The SP already supports links like that.

The tricky bit is that if you want to do it at the same time by putting the links on the EDS page, you have to generate them with Javascript in order to pick up the target parameter.

Without Javascript it's not so simple unless you host the EDS inside a server-side generated page.
