           Summary: Validator does not support Internationalized Domain
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: duerst@it.aoyama.ac.jp
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

The validator does not support Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs), but
should do so. IDNs have been standardized by the IETF in 2003, and an update
(mostly irrelevant for implementation in the validator) is underway now.
As a simple example, http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.ietf.org/
validates http://www.ietf.org/. Likewise,
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://恵比寿駅.jp/ should validate
