Universal Access

    JcK: ICANN topic in an ICANN committee

    richard: can you send link to the list?
    ... trying to follow IRI/URI/IDNA thing
    ... Don Hollander sent me a ping
    ... issue is that
    ... IDNA works technically, but purchasers are unhappy
    ... because they aren't well supported widely away from the
    core DNS

    <scribe> ScribeNick: aphillip

    Richard: getting wide range of stakeholders together to discuss
    universal deployment of IDNs
    ... and further discussion at MLWeb conf

    JcK: Don is trying to raise visibility
    ... some folks think this could work "by magic" and others want
    it to be improved
    ... another problem is that (particularly in china) that there
    is non-UTF-8 content unlabelled or wrongly labelled
    ... some of this stuff is "hard"
    ... for example, mail fixes requires work on mail transports
    ... in IMAP and POP clients
    ... problem occurs when you read community boundary
    ... MUAs run into problems crossing script boundaries
    ... not to mention use of IDNs for spoofing

    <r12a> companies can change their policies to accept idn
    identifiers, but you may not be able to type it in to an
    airport terminal

    addison: could solve the IDNA bit in isolation
    ... but not the non-host part of URI or the local part of
    email, etc.

    JcK: if you know the A label form you can use that (the
    punycode form)
    ... might be solved by having a smartphone app to conver to
    ... the system is worldwide
    ... but this solves communicating inside communities
    ... say China-to-China
    ... or Arabic-to-Arabic
    ... but hard when you start to go Arabic-to-Chinese

    addison: most systems can *read* or display the data

    richard: who are the players. what's going on, what the issues

    addison start our own list of the problems?

next telecon

    see you in two weeks
