As far as I know, Solaris 10 has a default Bourne Shell /sbin/sh, not ksh88. Solaris provides ksh93 in the form of dtksh (/usr/dt/bin/dtksh). dtksh is based on ksh-93 with X Toolkit Intrinsics (Xt) and Motif bindings, so that you can write Motif GUIs in ksh.
For what it's worth, ksh-93 is backwards compatible with ksh-88 beside a few exceptions:
• Variables in functions declared with the "name()" syntax are no longer local.
• ksh-93 does not set the ERRNO environment variable.
• Testing for string equality via the "=" operator is supported, but obsolete. Instead, use "==".
• The "-x" option to alias is no longer supported.
• The "-f" option to typeset is no longer supported.
• The output formats of some built-in functions including set, typeset, and alias has changed.
