Yip, sorry but IDN fast track started Nov. 16, 2009...and since then I
am spending allmost fulltime on it. So not expert since 2003 helas (in
domain names yes, not IDN).....but I dare to say yes in 2010. You are
the highest level group re. IDN/non-Latin characters I met since, nobody
could follow me anymore outside unicode.org, so now I am glad I found you.
I know reading signs, like ü have been introduced far before Nov. 16, 2009.
And IDN involves more than characters, it is also: what are keywords,
what ranks high, what is commercially exploitable...and: extensions -
there are over 1300 extensions in the world, which ones will come, go,
etc..I run a series of web based businesses myself, so I learn more than
'only registering names' and trying to sell them 'empty', which I find a
less friendly sport. And by not running web based businesses yourself
you never learn what extensions do well (the answer is of course never
written in a book , but amongst TLD we agree what does well and what
does not well).
Re. our ß: I do know that it will be allowed in domainnames between now
and a few months. So for unicoders ß may be old news, for domain names
it is news now. Punycode was thought to be good enough for domain names
I think May 2009 - and November 2009 IDN fast track was started. There
are no books on punycode (unlike unicode) - it is newer. Not that it is
better, it is just a common latin denominator of domain names across all
Working out punycode? *zca *is for ß. But of course in a word it may be
slightly different. I sense a tone of disbelief in Stephane's voice, I
wish she/you would trust me more, before I have to prove things with
past domainname achievements, Mensa membership and the like. Trust me I
will catch up on unicode and trust me I am an excellent IDN man. Check
with TLD experts....visits of Icann congress etc.
