Web language to go international

Regulatory body to approve website names in non-Latin characters.

    The regulatory body overseeing the internet has said it is ready to begin approving web site names written in non-Latin characters.

    The move is being billed as the biggest change in the 40-year history of the internet.

    Until now URLs have only been available in Latin script. But the changes should pave the way for users to enter addresses in scripts such as Chinese, Arabic and Cyrillic.
