I-D Action: draft-ietf-iri-comparison-01.txt


A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the Internationalized Resource Identifiers Working Group of the IETF.

        Title           : Equivalence and Canonicalization of Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs)
        Author(s)       : Larry Masinter

   Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs) are unicode strings
   used to identify resources on the Internet.  Applications that use
   IRIs often define a means of comparing two IRIs to determine when two
   IRIs are equivalent for the purpose of that application.  Some
   applications also define a method for 'canonicalizing' or
   'normalizing' an IRI -- translating one IRI into another which is
   equivalent under the comparison method used.

   This document gives guidelines and best practices for defining and
   using IRI comparison, equivalence, normalization and canonicalization
