   Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs) are unicode strings
   used to identify resources on the Internet.  Applications that use
   IRIs often define a means of comparing two IRIs to determine when two
   IRIs are equivalent for the purpose of that application.  Some
   applications also define a method for &#39;canonicalizing&#39; or
   &#39;normalizing&#39; an IRI -- translating one IRI into another which is
   equivalent under the comparison method used.

   This document gives guidelines and best practices for defining and
   using IRI comparison, equivalence, normalization and canonicalization
