Yes, I have a script that provides the boilerplate and pagination.

I like the name.
Note that only techies will even hear of Punycode (and Nameprep). Most
people will speak of ACE. The IDNA document uses the term ACE all over
the place, but the references to Punycode and Nameprep are buried in the
steps of ToASCII and ToUnicode. ACE is what you get by applying ToASCII
(which has several steps including Nameprep and Punycode).

Feel better? :)
