Lightbulb IDNchars.com

I built this website on IDN chars.
It has also a useful glossary, news (still very few), and a link to the most important forum on IDNs (this one! )

I hope that someone could help me to improve the glossary and the news of IDNchars.com: more informations are available, more the market will grow.

If you want to suggest a few links... I'm here and ready!

That's a sharp looking website :-) Most of the characters don't display properly for me, though. Firefox 2, Linux. And I never had problem viewing characters before.

The ones which don't display properly are arabic, syriac, thaana, and symbols - about half the characters in each group are squares.

also for me

there are chars that nobody can see, they're not supported yet by the browsers

Probably you can see a few of them with Notepad, but they are not useful in the WWW

Re: IDNchars.com

Yeah. Nice clean layout.

You might want to list the IDN test TLD's in your TLD list, to draw a little bit more attention to them.

Another cool thing would be to make it so that when you hovered over a character, the UNICODE # and name popped up.

Re: IDNchars.com

Ah, so the info isn't generated from a database, you did it by hand?

Re: IDNchars.com

Small suggestion .. change chars to characters so those who don't know what we are talking about will 'get it'

yes, there isn't a database, and I built the website starting from zero. It is solid and static html, not PHP or ASP

I changed the title of the homepage from "IDN chars" to "IDN characters".
Thanks

I reported the IDN.IDN Tests, with active links.
Thanks for the suggestion
