Dear Log,



RFC 3987
Title: Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs)
Author(s): M. Duerst, M. Suignard
Status: Standards Track
Date: January 2005
Pages: 46
Characters: 111190
Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None

This document defines a new protocol element, the Internationalized Resource Identifier (IRI), as a complement to the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). An IRI is a sequence of characters from the Universal Character Set (Unicode/ISO 10646). A mapping from IRIs to URIs is defined, which means that IRIs can be used instead of URIs, where appropriate, to identify resources.


RFC 3986
Title: Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax
Author(s): T. Berners-Lee, R. Fielding, L. Masinter
Status: Standards Track
Date: January 2005
Pages: 61
Characters: 141811
Updates: 1738
Obsoletes: 2732, 2396, 1808

A Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) is a compact sequence of characters that identifies an abstract or physical resource. This specification defines the generic URI syntax and a process for resolving URI references that might be in relative form, along with guidelines and security considerations for the use of URIs on the Internet. The URI syntax defines a grammar that is a superset of all valid URIs, allowing an implementation to parse the common components of a URI reference without knowing the scheme-specific requirements of every possible identifier. This specification does not define a generative grammar for URIs; that task is performed by the individual specifications of each URI scheme.
