> Internationalized Domain Names for Applications (IDNA) provides a
> method to map a subset of names written in Unicode into the DNS.
> Because of Unicode decisions, appearance, language and writing system
> conventions, and historical reasons, it often has been asserted that
> there is more than one way to write what competent readers and
> writers think of as the same host name; the different ways of writing
> are often called "variants". This document surveys the approaches
> that top level domains have taken to the registration and
> provisioning of domain names that have variants. This document is
> not a product of the IETF, does not propose any method to make
> variants work "correctly", and is not an introduction to
> internationalization or IDNA.
