+ Description (
+ "Slots are special types of Connectors into which adapter Cards "
+ "are typically inserted. The SlotInSlot relationship represents "
+ "the ability of a special adapter to extend the existing Slot "
+ "structure to enable otherwise incompatible Cards to be plugged "
+ "into a Frame or Hosting Board. The adapter effectively creates "
+ "a new Slot and can be thought of (conceptually) as a Slot in a "
+ "Slot. This enables Cards that would otherwise be physically "
+ "and/or electrically incompatible with the existing Slots to be "
+ "supported, by interfacing to the Slot provided by the adapter. "
+ "This has many practical uses. For example, networking boards "
+ "are very expensive. As new hardware becomes available, Chassis "
+ "and even Card configurations change. To protect the investment "
+ "of their customers, networking vendors will manufacture "
+ "special adapters that enable old Cards to fit into new Chassis "
+ "or Hosting Boards and/or new Cards to fit into old. This is "
+ "done using a special adapter that fits over one or more "
+ "existing Slots and presents a new Slot into which the Card can "
+ "plug." )]
