Updated article: An Introduction to Multilingual Web Addresses

Read the article

A paragraph about Firefox support for IRIs was updated. For a detailed list of changes read the full post.
Prompted by Jarl Friis, I changed the following paragraph:
“It doesn’t work out of the box as of January 2005 in Mozilla, Netscape or Firefox (although you may obtain results if the IRI and the resource name are in the same encoding). Technically-aware users can turn on an option to support this, but it is not yet exposed in the user interface.”
to read:
“It doesn’t work out of the box as of January 2005 in Mozilla, Netscape or Firefox (although you may obtain results if the IRI and the resource name are in the same encoding). Technically-aware users can turn on an option (set network.standard-url.encode-utf8 to true in about:config) to support this, but it is not yet exposed in the user interface. There are indications that it may be supported by default in Firefox 3.”

Translators should consider retranslating this paragraph.
