Patrik Fältström send me an email from his new and proud domain fältströ Notice there is the swedish character ä and ö? Yep, Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) finally! Yippee!

IDN is the effort of the WG I co-chair (together with Marc Blanchet) from 1999 to 2002 to bring internationalization to domain names, initiated from a project I did back in 1998. You know, if I know what I have to go through to do this, I probably won’t do it in the first place but now it is done, I am really glad I did.

ps: For more info on IDN, see RFC 3454, 3490, 3491 and 3492.
