Abstract: Many Chinese characters in common use have variants, which makes most of the Chinese Domain Names (CDN) have at least two different forms. The equivalence between Simplified Chinese (SC) and Traditional Chinese (TC) characters is very important for CDN registration. This memo defines some basic concepts and specifies the proposed registration and administration procedure of Chinese domain names based on the more general guidelines of RFC 3743 to avoid the problems that may be caused by the variants. It will be useful for understanding and using the tables defined in [LVT-SC] and [LVT-TC]. Protocol Quality Review of overlap with chartered IETF work was requested of the DNS Directorate, the IESG, and Scott Hollenbeck.
