Any real life examples?

I've just got back from a visit to Beijing and was unable to find any company using IDN.com, let alone IDN.IDN. Does anybody know of a site promoting itself through an IDN ?

Why would they do that without browser support?

All I know is CNNiC is now generating twice as much revenue through IDN as it is through ASCII.

My understanding is that IDN.IDN domains are resolved by all China based ISPs. Are you saying this isn't the case?

I am saying that unless you are 100% sure that the vast majority could access your site, you wouldn't spend marketing $$$ to promote the URL.

Don't think you could have looked very hard.

Try using Advanced Search at Yahoo for Chinese Simplified on URL only using one Hanzi character at a time. You should produce search results thus:

I should have clarified I meant offline usage - billboards, magazine ads, shop promotions etc.

Re: Any real life examples?

considering IE7 was just released, i assume it will be another year before any company spends money advertising IDN websites. I hope to be proven wrong, but i'm not expecting anything big for another year or so.

Well in many ways they don't need to. All they need to do is display the local URL at the top of their homepage and mask forward the IDN to the existing site. The rest will just happen. As soon as AU has done its thing though you can expect these URLs to start appearing. Hitachi and Sega are already forwarding.

As for China, I guess they are out there but not necessarily obvious. There are won't be a www. indeed there won't be a dot as the Chinese full stop is accepted. The Chinese already use the full IDN.IDN so you won't see the Latin extensions. You would probably need a good eye to spot them!
