European Athletics Champs Demonstrates Clear Need For IDNs

The European Athletic Championships are currently taking part in Göteborg, Sweden.

On the athletes' vests and the on-screen graphics, and doubtless in all printed media, it correctly says "Göteborg". But in the arena, an advertising board promotes the domain name:

Goteborg.com

The domain name being used is just plain "wrong". If the correct city name can be used everywhere else, then the domain name should be correct as well. And if M$oft hadn't messed up so monumentally, it would have been.

(Yes I know - another case of preaching to the converted - but another good example to show "ASCII doubters" of why the world needs IDNs).
