Title : A Method for Registering Internationalized Domain Names

This document describes some suggested practices for registering
internationalized domain names (IDNs) in a zone. Before accepting
registrations of domain names into a zone, the zone's registry should
decide which codepoints in the Unicode character set the zone will
accept. The registry should also decide whether particular characters in
a registered domain name should cause registration of multiple
equivalent domain names; these domain names might be added to the zone
or blocked from registration. This document also describes how to handle
character variants in registering IDNs, and how to publish tables that
list the character variants.

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
