Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs)

This RFC 3987 was published in 2005.


This document defines a new protocol element, the Internationalized Resource Identifier (IRI), as a complement to the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).
An IRI is a sequence of characters from the Universal Character Set (Unicode/ISO 10646).
A mapping from IRIs to URIs is defined, which means that IRIs can be used instead of URIs, where appropriate, to identify resources.
