Advisory Committee request for comments
Internationalized Domain Names

On 27 March 2003, the ICANN Board endorsed the IDN implementation approach set forth in the draft Guidelines for theImplementation of Internationalized Domain Names and authorized ICANN's President to implement the Guidelines by authorizing registration of IDNs in registries with agreements with ICANN on the basis of those Guidelines. The Board also recommended the Guidelines to other registries, and encouraged broad participation by registries, language experts, and others in consultative, collaborative, community-based processes to study and develop appropriate language-specific IDN registration rules and policies.

What do you think ICANN should be doing to advance IDN?
