  Internationalized domain name - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
IDN has, by the standards of the Internet, a long history; it was originally proposed in 1996 (by M. Duerst) and implemented in 1998 (by T.W.Tan et al).
Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA) is a mechanism defined in 2003 for handling internationalized domain names containing non-ASCII characters.
Such domain names could not be handled by the existing DNS and name resolver infrastructure.

Internationalized Domain Names and Labels This section describes the master template rules for all domain names and labels which may be used in the internationalized namespace, although subordinate rules and restrictions are also applied as secondary filters, depending on the intended usage of the domain name.
Internationalized Host Identifiers Internationalized host identifiers are a subset of the internationalized domain names described in section 4.1, which only use a subset of the allowable UCS characters, but which reuse the global transfer encodings and comparison routines.
Domain names which appear as unstructured data in application content are beyond the control of this specification, and are generally subject to the encoding and formatting desires of the end-users who created the data.

 Multilingual Domain Name Registries - Get your domain name in international languages
Internationalized domain names are domain names represented by native language characters.
ASCII is the current standard for domain names, which means all domain names are to be comprised of a to z and 0 to 9 Roman characters, plus the '-' symbol.
Only the SLD portion of the domain name is multilingual; the.com.net and.org portions of the domain remain and all information such as name, address for the Administrative and Billing contacts remain English ASCII based.

 Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) Support in Mozilla Browsers - MDC
When a browser sees a host name such as http://developer.mozilla.org, it passes a request to the DNS resolver service (usually built into an OS), which in turn sends a request to a nearest domain name server to return an IP address that corresponds to the host name.
RFC 3490 (Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA)) defines characters used in IDN to be drawn from Unicode Standard 3.2.
This was accomplished by the publication of the ICANN guideline for IDN in June of 2003.

Afilias Chairman, Mr Grabensee, represented the ICANN Registrar Constituency on the Names Council of the DNSO in 2002.
In implementing the "transfer undo" feature, Afilias has created a new command by which the sponsorship of a domain name may be transferred between registrars without the registry system automatically adding a year to the registration term of such domain name, and without charging the account of the gaining registrar.

 Internationalized Domain Names: The Babelization Factor
As one would expect, in the upcoming ICANN Shanghai Meeting of October 28, 2002, IDNs (Internationalized Domain Names, also known as Multilingual Domain Names), are one of the main topics of discussion.
Another center where IDN activities are gaining momentum is the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), not only because it is the oldest organization in the industry, but also because of the amazing possibilities and complications that ENUM services will bring into the mix.
IDN WG is in the final stage of specifying a document for the standardization of IDNs, from which I quote:

IDN has, by the standards of the Internet, a long history; it was originally proposed prior to (by M. Duerst) and implemented in 1998 (by T.W.Tan et al).
IDNs, internationalized domain names, have been a very hot topic as of late because of the growing awareness by the countries using non-ASCII languages combined with the highly anticipated release of IE7, which is believed to be IDN compliant.
The top names have not been traded yet and the ones that have were all subject to NDAs, so nobody really knows exactly how much they commanded or how much they will be commanding in one, two, three, four or five years down the road for that matter.

 Internationalized domain name - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, the standard for domain names does not allow such characters, and much work has gone into finding a way around this, either by changing the standard, or by agreeing a way to convert internationalized domain names into standard ASCII domain names.
The latter method now appears to be the one that will be adopted, a system called Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA) having been proposed, based on the Punycode ASCII encoding of Unicode strings.

 Patent flap slows multilingual domain name plan
Creating communications protocols for internationalized domain names is one of the most significant efforts under way within the IETF, the Internet's premier standards-setting body.
The IETF is under pressure from Internet users outside the U.S., who want domain names in their native languages instead of the English-language alternatives available today.

After Googling around a bit, I found a PHP library that can translate IDN’s into friendlier domain names that SimplePie (and more specifically, the CURL extension) can handle.
Instead of using the correct domain name, FeedTools ends up prefixing the links on James’ blog with “file:///”, which is obviously wrong.

 Internationalized Domain Name (idn) Charter
The goal of the group is to specify the requirements for internationalized access to domain names and to specify a standards track protocol based on the requirements.
The scope of the group is to investigate the possible means of doing this and what methods are feasible given the technical impact they will have on the use of such names by humans as well as application programs, as well as the impact on other users and administrators of the domain name system.
A fundamental requirement in this work is to not disturb the current use and operation of the domain name system, and for the DNS to continue to allow any system anywhere to resolve any domain name.
