Re: Verisign - Allowable characters

  2. None of the Unicode SIP (Supplementary Ideographic Plane) chinese characters are allowed
I had this very helpful response from Verisign:-

Verisign's CJK policy is driven by data tables provided by appropriate authorities. For instance, CNNIC provides a table which limits the characters that can be used in a Chinese (CHI) domain name. The only Compatibility Ideograph currently allowed in a Chinese domain is U+FA28. Again, this information is based on Chinese tables provided by CNNIC.

So now I just need to ask CNNIC the same questions
