A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts

       Title           : An IDNA problem in right-to-left scripts
       Author(s)       : H. Alvestrand, C. Karp
       Filename        : draft-alvestrand-idna-bidi-02.txt
       Pages           : 13
       Date            : 2008-01-09

The use of right-to-left scripts in internationalized domain names
has presented several challenges.  This memo discusses some problems
with these scripts, including one resulting from a constraint on the
use of combining characters at the end of an RTL domain label,
causing some words to be declared invalid as IDN labels, and proposes
a means for ameliorating this problem.

NOTE:   The mail server at can return the document in
       MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
       feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
       command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
       a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
       exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
       "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
       up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
       how to manipulate these messages.
