<BODY bgColor=white><P>I also am wondering if we had agreed to change the 
wording of "non-Latin" in Guiding Principle D to "non-ASCII." If so, this is a

language from todays meeting<BR><BR>&nbsp; <BR>Now I'm confused. It may be 
because I've not read the <BR>re-drafted whole document and I'm on the far side 
of <BR>the knowledge of Latin-based scripts. <BR><BR>I thought Latin-based 
scripts (which includes decorated <BR>a-z) are not allowed to apply for IDn 
ccTLD in the Fast <BR>Track. <BR><BR>May I ask you whether, for example, 
German-speaking <BR>territory can apply for a German territory name as IDN 
<BR>ccTLD string in the Fast Track if the string has 'eszett'? <BR><BR>Is there 
a clear definition of what scripts are <BR>Latin-based and what are not? Is 
Greek script Latin-based? <BR>Is Cyrillic script Latin-based? <BR><BR>Examples 
may help readers (like me) to avoid misunderstanding. <BR><BR>Thanks.

<BART.BOSWINKEL@xxxxxxxxx><BR>&gt; Subject: Re: Adjusted language from todays 
meeting <BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; Non-ASCII: <BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; The term "non-ASCII" is 
used here to designate any script that contains <BR>&gt; elements that are not 
listed in the US-ASCII character set. This <BR>&gt; includes Latin-based 
alphabets containing letters additional to the <BR>&gt; twenty-six basic 
letters "a" through "z" or using those letters with <BR>&gt; combining marks. 
<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; &gt; As we briefly discussed this afternoon can you send me 
some language <BR>&gt; &gt; on the the uniqueness of a label? As far as I 
recall and written down <BR>&gt; &gt; it has to do with the requirement to have 
at least one element in the <BR>&gt; &gt; string that is unique for the script 
to avoid potential confusion. <BR>&gt; &gt; Thanks, Bart <BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; A 
label in any script containing elements that, under common display <BR>&gt; 
conditions, appear identically to the literal elements of the US-ASCII <BR>&gt; 
character set, must contain at least one element that is visibly unique 
<BR>&gt; to the declared script. Where the visual confusability occurs between 
<BR>&gt; labels in two different non-ASCII scripts, the ambiguity should be 
<BR>&gt; resolved in a similar manner. <BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; ------ End of
