9 May 2004 New IRI Draft published: Last Call issued

The Internationalization Working Group has published a new Internet Draft of
Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs)[1]. A two-week last call on
the public-iri at mailing list was announced, which ends May 23, 2004.
IRIs are similar to URIs, but with the restriction to US-ASCII removed, and
with a mapping to URIs.
