C works here…it’s just less imperfect than the others. Agree with what many have said on this thread…the “right” answer is audience and contextually specific.

I’ve been grappling with this for la very long and now find out I’m not the only one.
So, how would you simply refer to IDNs.
a) non-ASCII - probably technically correct, but would your grandmother know what this meant?
b) non-Latin - Not even close to being correct as Latin character sets have all sorts of extra bits and bobs
c) non-English - Currently my favourite at the moment.
I’m looking for something really short.
