Title : Internationalized domain names using EDNS (IDNE)
Author(s) : M. Blanchet, P. Hoffman
Filename : draft-ietf-idn-idne-02.txt
Pages : 7
Date : 22-Mar-01
The current DNS infrastructure does not provide a way to use
internationalized domain names (IDN). This document describes an

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
