   W3C announces support for the publication of RFC 3987
   [1] Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs) as an IETF Proposed
   Standard, together with STD 66, RFC 3986, [2] Uniform Resource
   Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax ([3]Press release).

   IRIs expand the set of characters in URIs from a subset of US-ASCII to
   the Universal Character Set (Unicode/ISO 10646). They allow content
   developers and users to identify resources such as Web pages in their
   own languages. The IRI specification was in part developed by the
   Internationalization Working Group. The IRI specification will
   also provide a definitive reference for many W3C specifications - such
   as XML, RDF, XHTML and SVG.
