Next IE Beta Will See Global Domains

The second beta release of Internet Explorer 7 will have support for URLs written in different languages, widely seen as critical for making the Internet more international, according to a Microsoft developer. Internet Explorer 7 will use application programming interfaces (APIs) to convert domain names to punycode, wrote Vishu Gupta, an IE developer, in a blog posting earlier this week. Punycode is an ASCII translation of Unicode domain names, the format allowed by the domain name system. Next IE Beta Will See Global Domains - Yahoo! News
