Yes, i just installed IE7 2 days ago, might be a different version, dunno.

How? Just copy the €.com and paste into the browser.

btw, i can also access £.com, but it's redirected to poundsymbol.com - lucky fellow bought it for $1500 in Dec! It must be worth $100k today with IE7. If only i had the opportunity.

Yup, i'm getting 1-2 views a day for ¿.com. Some clicks, but very few.

Angry Re: £.com €.com Support in IE7?

Just downloaded and installed ie7:

With Phishing Filter Option: Disabled

€.com shows as xn--lzg.com (punnycode)

With Phishing Filter Option: Turn off automatic website checking

€.com shows as xn--lzg.com (punnycode) AND I get a Phising POP-up alert!!!

With Phishing Filter Option: Turn on automatic website checking

Gosh, didn't even tried that one...

Re: £.com €.com Support in IE7?

Funny, my xn--ija.com (Unicode 01C3) Latin Letter Retroflex Click is now getting traffic from Asia. Now ǃ.com gets several views a day for more than one day. No clicks, though.

Re: £.com €.com Support in IE7?

Speaking about monetization, anyone knows the best keyword or subject for symbols and punctuations? I'm using Science and Nature keyword. My inverted question mark gets hundred plus views a month, but only a few clicks, each about 20 cents a click.

Re: £.com €.com Support in IE7?

Does anyone read any of the technical stuff?

Symbols are just about dead.

http://icann.org/topics/idn/idn-guidelines-26apr07.pdf

5. Permissible code points will not include:

5.1 geometric and line-drawing symbols such as those in the Unicode Drawing and Box Element blocks.

5.2 symbols and icons that are neither alphanumeric nor ideographic language characters, such as typographic and pictographic dingbats,

5.3 characters will well-established functions as protocol elements,

5.4 punctuation marks used solely to indicate the structure of sentences,

5.5 punctuation marks that are used within words, with the possible exception of those that are not excluded by any of the preceding points, are essential to the language represented by the IDN, and are associated with explicit prescriptive rules about the context in which they may be used.

How interesting... It should be noted however that both £ and € (the subject of this thread) are ideographic language characters and so by ICANN's own definition are permissible.

Re: £.com €.com Support in IE7?

Are they going to disallow registrations? How about those already registered?

Re: £.com €.com Support in IE7?

I asked Verisign: "I wonder if you could help dispel a rumor. It is said that some 'symbol' domains (e.g. ¥, ¢, £, ?) will be deleted from the registry. I believe that this is a proposal, not a plan. Do you know the answer?"

Today, I was told, "I checked with various folks here and no one has heard anything that would indicate we have any plans to do as you suggest."

My guess is that they will ask registrars to stop registering symbols domains, but existing domains will continue until they are dropped.

Re: £.com €.com Support in IE7?

More from Verisign:

Actually that Internet-Draft, draft-iab-idn-nextsteps-06.txt, was published as a Standard, RFC 4690 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4690.txt), on 2006-9-30 and the specific reference is 5.1.1. Note however the operative phrase is "...should be..."

As this is a recommendation as I mentioned to you no one I have spoken with has heard anything that would indicate we have any plans to make any changes to our current practices.

And **if** something was to change it would require ICANN approval and announcement first.

Precisely, this needs to be voted on before it becomes policy and may be revised depending on the feedback they receive. Still five to midnight by my watch.
