Title : DUDE: Differential Unicode Domain Encoding
Author(s) : M. Welter, B. Spolarich
Filename : draft-ietf-idn-dude-01.txt
Date : 08-Mar-01
This document describes a tranformation method for representing
Unicode character codepoints in host name parts in a fashion that is
completely compatible with the current Domain Name System. It provides
for very efficient representation of typical Unicode sequences as
host name parts, while preserving simplicity. It is proposed as a
potential candidate for an ASCII-Compatible Encoding (ACE) for supporting the deployment of an internationalized Domain Name System.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
