Verisign has now apparently struck a deal
with Microsoft whereby the Internet Explorer 5.0+ now supports Verisign's
internationalized domain names (IDN's)
These are now being marketed actively here in Denmark.
If you key in an IDN in Internet Explorer, it asks you if you want to download the i-Nav plug in, which goes very quickly. Thereafter you can key in all the IDNs that Verisign has sold in the testbed. For example "Ĝl" means beer, and ĝl.com was sold to Carlsberg. Check out www.ĝl.com. You will see that it actually hops to a third level under .mltbd.com ("Multilingual testbed"?)
Any thoughts on whether we should register IDN's - or is
this just a waste of money while we await ICANN's take on this?
