Nice.  Basically, unless the TLD registrar has a public policy that basically says
"We don't allow names with cyrillic C to collide with MICROSOFT", their hostnames
all get displayed as xn--gobbledygook.

More or less.  ICANN has been wrestling with the lookalike character
issue in domain names for about a decade.  I think it's fair to say
that everyone agrees that all solutions are less than totally
satisfactory.

R's,
John
