Development of IDN compliant software for E-Mail

James Seng is one of the IDN Pioneers....noticed on his blog that one of his projects listed is related to developing IDN compliant software for E-Mail etc. He also spearheaded getting URLs in two symbols for China, Japan etc where it made sense. E-mail capability for IDN is critical....hope this project is still on his A list.

Nice find,

Do you know James personally ? If he has anything semi-working I'd be up for testing.

Don't know him personally, just that you see his name a lot in regards to the early development of IDN. He was one of the key players in helping write the standards for IDNs back in late 90's and has stayed involved to varying degrees throughout the process. He was one of the main proponents to get rid of the 3 character rule as it made no sense for Chinese language.

I am sorry, but I beg to differ. James has probably contributed more than the entire ICANN Board, who are now busy taking all the credit for their obstructive procrastination and meddling.

Yup. James has done a lot of work getting IDN accepted.

A lot of people here will need to be buying his drinks in a few years time.
