The reason 960 is standard is because it is a "highly abundant, composite" number (i.e. it is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 16, 20, 24, 30, 32, 40, 48, 60, 64, 80, 96, 120, 160, 192, 240, 320, 480, and 960). This makes it incredibly easy to build grid layouts based on the 960 grid system.

Although, I think that fixed-width designs are being challenged by the css3 multi-column model.

True, it is a bit of an unknown for me as well. It looks like it has a third party plugin for mysql, though. My thought is that you:

  • Setup your node.js app to listen on a local port for http data
  • Send commands to your node.js server from PHP over the localhost HTTP connection and add them to some sort of queue
  • Use the node.js app's setTimeout and setInterval functions to create timers (like in regular JS) that will poll the mysql database and process the queued commands

I'm going to give this script a try for a project that I am working on.
