Hello Martin, All.

As promised, I had a look at how to support IDNs in the validator. I 
have set up and played with an instance at 
http://qa-dev.w3.org/wmvs/ot/ and it validates e.g 
http://納豆.w3.mag.keio.ac.jp without trouble.

The code is far from perfect, e.g I have not yet managed to make it 
display the actual IDN in the validation results. The following code 
(presented as a diff) will give the result attached as result-1.html, 
i.e warning about a redirection to the xn-- host.

Adding the following helps a bit (i.e no redirection warning) but still 
no pretty display of the IDN. Cf attachment result-2.html

Tell me if that will be enough for your demo, and which you'd rather 
show.
