You're talking about IDNs ? The actual domain name is still US-ASCII,
only when you decode punycode do you get UTF8 characters.

Unfortunately, you are correct.
It was never the intention of the IDNS WG for the
end-user to see PUNYCODE, but rather that all
IDNS be seen by the end-user as actual Unicode
code points (Unicode characters). The only
browser that currently supports this is Safari.
For example --
-- is square-root dot com. In all browsers except
Safari, PUNYCODE is shown in the address bar, but
in Safari it's shown as .com
The IDNS works, but for fear of homographic
attacks IE (and other browsers) will not show the
