Commitments and Contingencies [Abstract]  
          Indemnification liabilities –
          In connection with the CWAE Divestiture, the Company indemnified respective parties against certain liabilities that may arise related to certain contracts with certain investees of Accolade, a certain facility in the U.K. and a certain income tax matter. As a result, the Company recorded liabilities with a fair value of $26.1 million at January 31, 2011. During the three months ended May 31, 2011, the Company was released from one of its guarantees related to a contract with a certain investee of Accolade. In connection with this release, the Company recognized a gain of $0.7 million, which is included in selling, general and administrative expenses on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations. As of May 31, 2011, and February 28, 2011, the carrying amount of these indemnification liabilities was $25.4 million and $26.1 million, respectively. If the indemnified party were to incur a liability, pursuant to the terms of the indemnification, the Company would be required to reimburse the indemnified party. As of May 31, 2011, the Company estimates that these indemnifications could require the Company to make potential future payments of up to $330.9 million under these indemnifications with $282.1 million of this amount able to be recovered by the Company from third parties under recourse provisions. The Company does not expect to be required to make material payments under the indemnifications and the Company believes that the likelihood is remote that the indemnifications could have a significant adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, cash flows or liquidity.
          Other contingency –
          In February 2011, the Company terminated early a certain agreement with a certain equity method investee. Based upon the terms of the certain agreement and the related joint venture agreement, the Company concluded as of May 31, 2011, and February 28, 2011, that it is not probable that there is a likelihood of loss under this contingency. Therefore, no liability has been recorded by the Company related to this contingency. While the Company believes it should prevail against any claim related to the early termination of this agreement, a loss of up to $57 million could be incurred by the Company should it not prevail in any claim.
