AW: Migration timeframe

I am a bit confused, did you maybe mean IE9 and IE7 instead of IE8 and IE6?
Actually old IE6 browsers should be the least problem unless they have not
installed one of the IDN plug-ins. Sorry if I'm getting it wrong.


Would it be possible to update IE7 and IE8 installations to IDNA2008 through
the Microsoft update procedure?

There's been talk of the transition time and lots of mention that IE6
doesn't support IDNA.  It is probably worth considering that any new
IDNA2008 behavior (eszett or otherwise) likely won't happen until IE8 (and
at the rate the WG is moving, maybe IE10 :))  As noted with the IE6
installed base, it is difficult to move the installed base to a "new"
version (or even a patched version), so there could still be IDNA2003
browers a decade from now.
