New Service Explores the Market

   How many people use Chinese around the
    world?
   The answer should be more than the number

    name to increase the volume of registration
   Should this service increase registration and
    be accepted by registrants?

Challenge to .tw IDN

   The use of Chinese characters around the
    world makes the IDN implementations difficult.

   Tradition/Simplify Chinese mapping
            Ex: 台  臺 (platform, stage)
    –   Writing variant mapping
            Ex: 峰  峯 (peak)
Cont.

   In another aspect, they are the same meaning ,
    however, there are different writing character in
    different countries.
   In China:
    –   劝(529D) (persuade,advise)
   In Japan:
    –   勧(52E7)
   In Taiwan:
    –   勸(52F8)
