I can see it now ICANN announces that the new version of sliced bread is better for everyone, however, it will not fit any electric toasters currenlty in use outisde of Latvia.
Geezzz.....just leave stuff alone already!

This is very bad news indeed as you have stated, you won't know what link you are "clicking" or where you are going.
I don't know how the companies that monitor phishing sites will be able to keep up if many legitimate sites start using these characters.
A sad day for the internet indeed.
I think it is fair to assume that if they cannot type
it they cannot read it so why bother?

At first I thought this would just bring about mass confusion, but now I think I get it. - No Problem!
However, as more and more "foreign" language characters are being used on websites, such as the swastika looking thing above, how do we get them to show up correctly. I know the shape being referred to but my FF browser just shows a little box with numbers in it.
Is there some setting I need to change so these things display the way intended??
