Do you suffer from Diaresis?

Do you suffer from Diaresis? Do you have an Acute Circumflex or a Grave Cedilla? If so, says the IPKat, there's no need to see a doctor. But you should get wise to the fact that Thursday 10 December is the apparently arbitrary date on which you will be able to register .eu top level domain names with twiddly bits on the letters. The culprit, or saviour (depending on your preference) is Eurid, which has done all this for you (click here for further information).

Says the IPKat, how long will it be before we see disputes over the registration of such gems as cøcåcðlã.eu and vęrĩző, I wonder. Says Merpel, mïâòû!

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
