Drewbert, I KNOW what I am talking about. Safari and Opera have no issues becasue they don't care about the language script encoding. € and £ are on the "Zyyy" (Common)... that's were the problem is. http://www.unicode.org/Public/4.1.0/ucd/Scripts.txt

This was done by Universities on India, Pakistan and EUA. Europe was, as usual on things like this, left behind and thus the problems we're having. Should we contant the European Union?!
OK. Gotcha, but then this isn't an ICANN issue, it's a UNICODE CONSORTIUM issue.

GOOD LUCK dealing with those guys - pretty sure they're run like the United Nations.

The whole thing is caused by Microsoft blocking multi-script IDN's in an effort to prevent phishing?

Preferably this sort of thing should be done at the registry level, rather than browser level, of course. Which they appears to be doing now, banning new registrations of domains having punctuation and symbols.
