Dear Mr Markham, 

I am writing you on behalf of the University of Latvia, Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science, Network Solutions Department, the Registry of the ccTLD .LV (Latvia).

Recently we have received several complaints from Firefox users that .LV IDN domains are converted to punycode once Firefox opens the site. We offer IDN.LV registrations since March 2004 and you can find the list of allowed diacritical letters used in our domain at  article 1.11. and 6.1.3.

We would be happy if you could add .LV ccTLD to the list of IDN-enabled TLDs. Please let us know if there is any additional information you require.

Kind regards,

Katrina Sataki
