Dear IRI WG,

Just before the Internet Draft final submission cut-off, I have 
submitted a new version of draft-ietf-iri-3987bis-12.txt.

The main change this time is that there are now versions with non-ASCII 
characters. This is very helpful for examples, and also quite nice for 
peoples' names. I don't have non-ASCII equivalents for everybody's name, 
in particular in the Acknowledgements section, so please send me any you 

There are not many other changes. The most notable ones are that I 
removed the mention of "Draft Standard" (because that just doesn't exist 
anymore), and that there is a change in wording removing the word 
"origin" (issue #128).

Peter, we may be able to close issue #128 (it's your choice both as the 
person who raised it and as a chair). But we need some new issue(s?) to 
cover the questions that Dave brought up re. query parts.

The 'pure' US-ASCII text version is at
the HTMLized US-ASCII version at

But you should look at one of the versions that contain Unicode, either 
the text version at
the HTML version at
or the PDF version at

A diff for the US-ASCII version can be found at

A diff for the UTF-8 version can be found at
(you may have to tell your browser that you want the result to be 
interpreted as UTF-8).

A diff between the US-ASCII and the UTF-8 version of draft -12 can be 
found at

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
  This draft is a work item of the Internationalized Resource 
Identifiers Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs)
	Author(s)       : Martin J. Duerst
                           Michel Suignard
                           Larry Masinter
	Filename        : draft-ietf-iri-3987bis-12.txt
	Pages           : 40
	Date            : 2012-07-16

    This document defines the Internationalized Resource Identifier (IRI)
    protocol element, as an extension of the Uniform Resource Identifier
    (URI).  An IRI is a sequence of characters from the Universal
    Character Set (Unicode/ISO 10646).  Grammar and processing rules are
    given for IRIs and related syntactic forms.

    Defining IRI as a new protocol element (rather than updating or
    extending the definition of URI) allows independent orderly
    transitions: protocols and languages that use URIs must explicitly
    choose to allow IRIs.

    Guidelines are provided for the use and deployment of IRIs and
    related protocol elements when revising protocols, formats, and
    software components that currently deal only with URIs.

    This document is part of a set of documents intended to replace RFC
