Subject: [UA-discuss] Latin+Cyrillic — .com .닷컴 .コム

Some thoughts, having now caught up with all the UA emails on phishing.

①  Over the years there has been much discussion about Cyrillic being used to masquerade as ASCII domain names. I wonder if the Russian speaking community have been having similar discussions with respect to ASCII being used to masquerade as Cyrillic domain names.

② You are all aware that many different human language scripts can be used with the .com TLD. Until today I had not thought about which scripts can be used with .닷컴 (.com in Korean Hangeul) and .コム (.com in Japanese Katakana). If you look at https://www.iana.org/domains/idn-tables<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.iana.org%2Fdomains%2Fidn-tables&data=02%7C01%7Cmarksv%40microsoft.com%7Cad2683abcd784679470408d48d7b1c60%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C636289007276324088&sdata=ZlDbi1LhhdY4whA5COsUarlQjBd2LOmMmXUNCphDAKM%3D&reserved=0> you will see that many different human language scripts can be used with .닷컴 and .コム. What is really cool is that Egyptian Hieroglyphs is listed as one of the scripts.
