ICANN moving to adopt IDNs

Another article about IDNs...

QUOTE: On June 19, 2007, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced its .test plan of the Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) concept (http://www.icann.org/announcements/a...2-19jun07.htm). Those wishing to comment on or to respond to the proposed .test plan may do so online by July 31, 2007.
ICANN is reconsidering what some have called “non-English” generic top-level domain names (gTLDs) or domain suffixes. Instead of using Roman (not English) characters after the final “dot” in an Internet address, other characters could find their way to the right of that dot. To set the record straight, ICANN does not refer to “non-English” characters, for indeed, we are not talking about English “letters.” ICANN has a more neutral term: Internationalized Domain Names (IDN). So, as a first order of business, let us stop referring to non-English characters and start calling them what they are: IDNs.

According to the article -

Quote:
Incorporating non-Roman characters may prove to be a complex undertaking. The Rosetta Project (www.rosettaproject.org/about-us/about-us) has identified more than 2,500 different languages. Some of these languages are not written. But consider some of the major extant character sets: Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Korean, Japanese, Roman, Thai, and Vietnamese—in sum, the range of orthography living and dead. These comprise alphabetic or phonetic scripts where symbols represent (more or less) sounds, ideographic or logographic scripts where symbols represent concepts, and those systems that combine the two. Phonetically based scripts incorporate logograms. Consider these in common use: € ∞, and ©, not to mention national flags or these symbols:...
It is said that ICANN will accept the common use: € ∞, and © symbols IDNs ?
Am I correct?

No
the article is explaining everything in all of the languages... I dont know how he got those symbols as part of the language. However ICANN has made it clear that they are banning these symbols in a future update.
