Default 'Historic' day as first non-latin web addresses go live

From http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/10100108.stm

Quote:
Arab nations are leading a "historic" charge to make the world wide web live up to its name.

Net regulator Icann has switched on a system that allows full web addresses that contain no Latin characters.

Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are the first countries to have so-called "country codes" written in Arabic scripts.
