    I love the use of code-page in «
        Such warnings could identify when there is a mix of "code pages"
    (such as Latin and Cyrillic) and give the user the option to proceed or

    This in the day and age of Unicode ;-)

    Scripts, writing systems (cf. CJK), but code pages (which code page for
    Syriac or Khmer ?).

    I wonder whether this should not say " ICANN and a large number of
    country-code registries" (if CENTR does speak in their name in this
    instance). I did not see ".za" nor ".au" in the list of country-code
    registries associated to CENTR.
