The other thing to test is whether the browser supports the %xx%xx version
of Unicode characters.

Examples:

  (a) Characters (b) Hex bytes (c) Punycode Variation  1
http://öbb.at<http://%c3%b6bb.at/>
http://%C3%B6bb.at <http://%c3%b6bb.at/>
http://xn--bb-eka.at<http://%c3%b6bb.at/>
canonical  2 http://ÖBB.at <http://%c3%b6bb.at/>
http://%C3%96bb.at<http://%c3%b6bb.at/>
http://xn--bb-eka.at <http://%c3%b6bb.at/> case variation  3
http://öbb.at<http://%c3%b6bb.at/>
http://%C3%B6%EF%BD%82b.at <http://%c3%b6bb.at/>
http://xn--bb-eka.at<http://%c3%b6bb.at/> width
variation (NFKC)
BTW, http://öbb.at <http://%c3%b6bb.at/> is a nice real IDN.
