Last Call: URI and IRI Internet-Drafts

   The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has announced two Last Call
   Internet-Drafts important for Web addressing. The documents are
   coordinated IETF-W3C efforts.

   * "Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax" is written
     by Tim Berners-Lee (W3C), Roy Fielding (Day Software) and Larry
     Masinter (Adobe) with involvement of the W3C Technical
     Architecture Group (TAG). Last Call ends 13 September. Simple
     text strings that refer to Internet resources, URIs may refer to
     documents, resources, to people, and indirectly to anything. URIs
     are a fundamental component of the Web. Read about the W3C URI
     Activity and visit the TAG home page.


   * "Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs)" is written by
     Martin Dürst (W3C) and Michel Suignard (Microsoft) with
     involvement of the W3C Internationalization Working Group. Lifting
     the limitation to a subset of US-ASCII previously allowed in Web
     addresses, IRIs allow characters in the Universal Character Set
     (Unicode/ISO 10646). Last Call ends 8 September. Visit the W3C
     Internationalization home page.
