This tutorial was decommissioned on 4 June, 2007.

Link to tutorial

A Web address is used to point to a resource on the Web such as a Web page. Recent developments enable you to add non-ASCII characters to Web addresses. This tutorial provides a high level introduction to how this works, and reviews current support on mainstream browsers.

After reading this tutorial you should:

  • understand how domain names containing non-ASCII text are handled, according to the IDN specifications
  • understand how path names containing non-ASCII text in Web addresses are handled, according to the IRI specification
  • get a general idea of how well multilingual Web addresses are supported for use in major browsers
