A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Internationalized Domain Name Working Group of the IETF.
Title : AltDUDE version 0.0.2
Author(s) : A. Costello
Filename : draft-ietf-idn-altdude-00.txt
Date : 22-Mar-01
DUDE [DUDE01] by Mark Welter and Brian Spolarich is an
ASCII-Compatible Encoding (ACE) of Unicode strings, and AltDUDE is a
slight variation on it that is conceptually simpler.
AltDUDE is a reversible map from a sequence of unsigned integers
(intended to be Unicode code points) to a sequence of letters (A-Z,
a-z), digits (0-9), and hyphen-minus (-), henceforth called LDH
characters. Such a map might be useful for internationalized domain
names [IDN], because host name labels are currently restricted to
LDH characters by [RFC952] and [RFC1123].

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
