Implementation of D-Name
 
Hi,

I wanted to see if anyone can answer this...in the event that D-Name will be used (Hopefully that it will..and soon) how will it be i.e for Hebrew since it is a language written from right to left...wont be a problem?

Thanks,

Michael

P.S Anyone heard anything lately of appx/accurate d-name system implementation ?

It is up to the script rendering engine and not the domain encoding.

On the Mac in the Safari browser, for example, Hebrew is rendered left to right, with the .com appearing on the other side, even though the domain is registered as HEBREW.com and not com.WERBEH, with a double cursor flashing so you know where you are in this mixed directional environment.

When you use ie7 ...and type hebrew so it is no problem to get i.e israel.com ישראל.קום which is the correct way...hopefully d name will look same..i think it should

Yes, this is correct but at the moment your browser will just send the punycode that relates to קום which the DNS cannot recognise. DName will enable allow this to be redirected to the dot com registry, where it will pick up the IP Address.

For incoming Punycode your Vista Software when you get it shoud be able to convert all dot com address to your local language, using a look-up table which means all your links will display קום instead of dot com, but only if you set Hebrew as the default in your Operating System.
