This note describes issues raised by the deployment and use of
Internationalized Domain Names.  It describes problems both at the
time of registration and for use of those names in the DNS.  It
recommends that IETF should update the RFCs relating to IDNs and a
framework to be followed in doing so, as well as summarizing and
identifying some work that is required outside the IETF.  In
particular, it proposes that some changes be investigated for the
Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA) standard and
its supporting tables, based on experience gained since those
standards were completed.  This memo provides information for the 
Internet community.
