                      The Unicode Code Points and
         Internationalized Domain Names for Applications (IDNA)

Abstract

   This document specifies rules for deciding whether a code point,
   considered in isolation or in context, is a candidate for inclusion
   in an Internationalized Domain Name (IDN).

   It is part of the specification of Internationalizing Domain Names in
   Applications 2008 (IDNA2008).
