Abstract

The current DNS infrastructure does not provide a way to use internationalized host names (IDN). This document describes a mechanism that requires no changes to any DNS server that will allow internationalized host names to be used by end users with changes only to resolvers and applications. It allows flexibility for user input and display, and assures that host names that have non-ASCII characters are not sent to servers.
