Hello Chris,

Thanks for mentioning the IRI draft. A new version has now
officially been published, see below. Please also have a look
at draft-ietf-idn-uri-02.txt, which is related.

While the main discussion list for both drafts is different from
this list, please feel free to raise any issues here that have
to do with URIs in general.

Regards,    Martin.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

         Title           : Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRI)
         Author(s)       : M. Duerst, M. Suignard
         Filename        : draft-duerst-iri-01.txt
         Pages           : 27
         Date            : 05-Jul-02

This document defines a new protocol element, the Internationalized
Resource Identifier (IRI), as a complement to the URI [RFC2396].  An
IRI is a sequence of characters from the Universal Character Set
[ISO10646].  A mapping from IRIs to URIs is defined, which means that
IRIs can be used instead of URIs where appropriate to identify
The approach of defining a new protocol element was chosen, instead
of extending or changing the definition of URIs, to allow a clear
distinction and to avoid incompatibilities with existing software.
