Re: Unicode/Punycode Pair

This is not just a mind game because a Perfect Pair would add value to an IDN.

Now I do not know how many Perfect Pairs there are, though with each release of Unicode containing new characters there is the potential for new Perfect Pairs.

For years now we have been hoping for proper Unicode display of IDNs and the situation has certainly improved. There are still though agents that display punycode form. Browsers will display punycode form if the IDN is not whitelisted.

A Perfect Pair gives the big advantage that whether the agent displays the IDN in unicode or punycode form, the user will still see a readable and meaningful and relevant Domain Name.
