IDN spoofing solutions with balance

A few years old, but still an excellent article. Purportedly from the inventor of IDN himself.

Re: IDN spoofing solutions with balance

Yep. Very logical and workable solution. He gets one thing wrong though when discussing which browser would show the most support for IDNs:

"Thus, my greatest hope is for Mozilla, who has consistently shown a great concern for getting internationalization right."

Oops!!

btw, that site is Paul Hoffman's blog site. He is indeed who he says he is.

Also some discussion in this thread... Not a lot seems to have happened since then.

Re: IDN spoofing solutions with balance

Mozilla have only been able to get away with their "policy" for so long because of the general view that IDNs don't exist yet, so IDN policies really don't matter a hoot.

Hopefully with the publicity about IDNs building all the time, some kind of intelligent resolution must happen and people will start seeing IDN.com in their firefox browser. or perhaps I live in la la land ....

Or perhaps they just consider that the Anglo market is big enough for them.

That is Dead Meat Policy. Even Microsoft seem to have abandoned that strategy!
