Re: วิธี จดโดเมนเนมภาษาไทย

ok, here are the cases for the simpler domain: นํ้า.com

First, sub-cases for when use the "compound" i.e. single keystroke " ำ"
1) Type "ำ" first, followed by "้", it goes to xn--q3c4c8cp.com
2) Type "้" first, followed by "ำ", it goes to xn--q3c4c8cq.com

Then the case for when you separate out the two components of "ำ" first "ํ" then "า"
3) Type "ํ", followed by "้", followed by "า" it goes to xn--q3c4c8cp.com

You'd have to consult with one of those Thai Uni guys that decided whenever how Thai "worked" on keyboards and how it is encoded, but there are certainly some issues when you have sara-am plus accents, different systems deal with it in different ways, as you pointed out with Word.

The reality at the moment is if you saw นํ้า.com on a page, you wouldn't know which of the two destinations you are going to, either xn--q3c4c8cp.com or xn--q3c4c8cq.com ......

That isn't good. They are visually identical and go to two different websites.

Doesn't affect 99% of Thai domains fortunately but I think something that needs looking at.
