    WRONG fnord. Both NSI and XTNS are currently using the SAME Realnames technology in the SAME way. It is the same code. As Tobias points out, when the current ML.com (etc) names go in to the root then, and only then, will the NSI and XTNS names differ at all. But even then XTNS names will continue to work the way NSI IDNs have (the exact same way) for the past few months, and for the next month or so until they enter the root (if they do, and that process goes well ...)

    The difference is that Verisign is using the Realnames technology, and the proprietary MSIE features it depends on, as a temporary method of allowing some limited use of the new internationalized names until they are fully deployed and supported in their final form. XTNS, on the other hand, is intending to use this crutch as its permanent resolution method.

    Also, Verisign seems to have more clout with Microsoft to ensure that their temporary-crutch system actually works, even if it's only needed for a limited time...

    If they were using the same technology in the same way why aren't they using the same database? Don't get me wrong, I think en-français.en-français is preferable to en-français.com, but if XTNS is the (only or best) vehicle to get us to that point then we might as well not go there. -g
