"Chinese IDN is fetching a premium"

James Seng has been involved with IDN development since day 1, you can google his name for more about his involvement.

Here is his blog this week, which deals with his trip to China and IDN.

"Chinese IDN is fetching a premium (~20USD chinese over 3USD for english). This is mostly thanks to the support of IDN in IE7."
