Today mark the publication of RFC 3743. aka JET IDN Guideline. A work I started in the Joint Engineering Team (JET) after realizing that it is not possible to handle traditional and simplified ideographs within the IDN protocol in 2001. To certain extend, ICANN’s Guideline for IDN is based on this work.
Phew..it been a long journey (my god..more then 2 years!) and I am glad I can put this behind. This work would not be done without the assistant of John Klensin. Thanks all!
ps: This is not Standard Track. It is an Informational RFC.
