Re: Just discovered this. Got me a little worried.

Not sure if Korea is doing this, but China certainly uses local characters to represent the .CN and has it own version of dot com and dot net that resolve using the current plug-in.
It is a Balkanisation of the net to some extent, but China seem keen to go along with ICANN provided ICANN makes some consessions. The first of these is to give China and others non-AscII ccTLD extensions direct on the DNS. I think their versions of dot com and dot net will then effectively become .com.cn and .net.cn.

Wondered whether this apparent confusion is something to do with the Koreans using local characters for their ccTLD. If they are, it will only work with their own registeries plug-in.

In the longer-term it would seem that the browser software will translate the first level (TLD) into local characters and back again.

Best Regards
