ICANN have announced three new IDN TLDs: this bug is to track the entry for the United Arab Emirates. See http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-05may10-en.htm for details.
We need to wait for them to contact us. Gerv

Registration for websites have started and registrants now have live websites with their IDN.IDN “.امارات” domains. Kindly find the allowed characters for the zone at http://aeda.ae/aeda/eng/emaratlngtb.php ... and later ...

It looks like they are following the Arabic IDN RFC (5564). I'm just checking that this is the case but, assuming it is, this is fine and I'll prepare a patch. Gerv
