Non-ASCII URLs to Test


Recently, there has been a lot of progress in implementing Web addresses with non-English characters including different scripts. This ability is courtesy of the IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) technology.

Some test links are given below, but they may not work in older browsers. Note also that many have ASCII only equivalents or redirect to a site with an older ASCII only URL.

Wikipedia is also a good source of non-ASCII URL's. Translated articles on Elizabeth I of England can be found at these locations.

For the latest news on IDN implementation, see IDN page on the ICANN Web site at http://www.icann.org/en/topics/idn/
