...and from India
 
Some IDN progress news from India

Quote:

Pandey said, "Even as we try and introduce IDNs in Indian languages, there are several issues that need to be resolved, especially issues arising out of the complexity of Indian scripts. For example, once we roll out Indian language IDNs, there will be occasions when it will not be possible to make out the difference between Hindi and Marathi, or for matter any languages in Devanagari scripts."
and the funny part

Quote:

"So far, IDN's were available only in Latin characters and therefore, having your own domain name in Indian language or script was impossible.

They have the basics wrong. A word can be written in the same script and spelled the same way and be the same word in different languages.

Yes, but identical strings can also be different words in different languages.

Yes, take öl, for example. Öl means oil in German, and beer in Swedish.
