How do you access this one with the ASCII?

http://www.xn--48jwg747h.com/

I tried it several ways. Is there actually an ASCII version of this site?

http://e-takumi.com/
do the search for the site name & both versions should usually be indexed.

Re: How do you access this one with the ASCII?

Yes, that works and very logical, but how would the average punter have the ASCII name reinforced from the title block on the site? IDN no problem. ASCII? Total confusion! Or do they just not associate names with navigation?

It would seem to me that japanese don't type-in, they use bookmarks or yahoo that somehow finds the website, so in other words, the name doesn't have to be exact.

Re: How do you access this one with the ASCII?

Very interesting.

They ignore the real ascii url in their website by using an unaccessable ascii url. It seems that they think an accessable IDN url is enough for their site.

A side issue, I now understand why my さん.com gets good (type-in) traffic; it means search.com!

I started believing that in January 2007. I'm damn ready for January 2008 . IDN, IMO, is enough. It's just a matter of people doing a simple upgrade, and BAM! If someone in Siberia who can't read or write in Arabic can't access my Arabic IDNs, oh well to them. They wouldn't understand the advertisements on my websites anyways (kinda a low-blow, but seriously... I didn't invest this much to cater to people who can't read or write the language that my websites are targeting).

No, you would have to be some kind of ASCII Guru to do that!
