It doesn't all work very well indeed, if you ever try to register a foreign
domain name with register.com you get the following warning (the only
garantee is it that they'll make you pay :).

"At this time, the central registry is supporting the registration of
international character domain names in an experimental testbed.
International character domain names are not yet and may not be fully
functional on the Internet and cannot be used for Email Services or any
other DNS related activity.  Please contact your Web hosting company to
determine if Web hosting is available for your special symbol domain name.
By registering international character domain names at this time you
understand and assume the risk that your domain name registration may be
temporarily or permanently suspended or denied based on further developments
by Internet standard-setting bodies.  In addition, the encoding schemes,
protocols and other international character-enabling technologies are not
within our control, are subject to change without notice and may not prevent
other people from registering the international character domain name that
you have registered.  You assume all risks that such changes may disrupt,
impair or otherwise prevent your ability to use the international character
domain name you have registered."
