Visitors to websites written in Korean, Chinese, Arabic and other non-ASCII characters will no longer have to type URLs in English.  International domain names (IDN) are being tested on 11 pilot sites in these languages as well as Japanese and Greek.  The testing could be concluded by the end of this year.


The IDNs will make the internet easier to use for visitors to non-ASCII sites.  Right now, visitors have to type the website and email addresses in English, even if the website appears in Cyrillic.  Russian sites will be able to have their URL displayed in both English and Cyrillic.  Only http:// will be displayed in English because it is automatically added by browsers.
