When I try to validate i.e. www.magyarország.hu (using IDN) by URL, it 
doesn't work, because the application 
(http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.magyarorsz%C3%A1g.hu%2F) 
encoding it to www.magyarorsz%C3%A1g.hu instead of 
www.xn--magyarorszg-t7a.hu (using ACE - Ascii Compatible Encoding).

Is it planned to extend the usage of the validator to IDN-s? Or could 
you make a help page about this issue (how to encode IDN-s for using in 
the validator)?

Thanks for advance,
   Eva Megyaszai
