Something the article doesn't indicate is if the internationalized TLD is equivalent to the Latin TLD. eg: مصر., being functionally the same as .eg, or whether the same domain in both can be owned by different parties. Sounds like a confusing mess to me, that'll hurt the internet more than it helps. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:18, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Not very helpful
This article states historical facts, but is not useful.
For instance, - how does one recognize an internationalized country code? - where is the list which can be used to decode such a code? - how can one type such a code with a "standard" (Latin) keyboard? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 06:09, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
I just cleared up some dodgey bracketing.

representing 11 languages?
In line with the subject it would make more sense to assume here 11-scripts/alphabets are used. However, the source indeed states "languages". Does anyone have the 11/21 languages involved to see what's right? L.tak (talk) 16:38, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
What about Greek alphabet.
The sentence "Currently Russia uses .ru, which in Cyrillic transliterates as "ру", which is confusingly similar to .py, the TLD of Paraguay" is followed by a "Citation needed". Why? The similarity between "py" and "ру" should be obvious, and the transliteration is evident to anyone who consults a list of the Russian alphabet.
- It's not the ru/py part that needed citing, strictly speaking, but the assertion that it's confusing. I found a ref, in any case. —Korath (Talk) 23:18, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Would someone please add the (approximate) transliterations for the Arabic scripts? One is presently listed for Egypt, but this would be better placed at the first occurrence. Thank-you, Colin MacLaurin (talk) 01:45, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
