    it's like a compressed unicode. Instead of each unicode letter being 6 ascii characters (ie. u+1234), it's a starting point for the first character and then uses smaller numbers to represent the relative positions in that alphabet.

  • Google Blogoscoped: 'Domains using the full character spectrum aren’t really supported well in browsers, partly due to security issues... so entering something like bücherei.com (the German word for library) will resolve into what is called a punycode address, namely xn--bcherei-n2a.com. This kinda ruins it for serious uses, but still, there’s domains out there using more than just ASCII letters...'
