Punycode & nslookup

Hi Joe,

my "problem" is: I can't test the zone with nslookup (only when i use 
the puny-encoded domainname). Also other tools who uses dns to resolv 
the entered domainname (like ping www.umlauttestäöü.de) did'nt work.

So i thought that

1. The User enters a url with Umlauts in browser
2. Browser examine url, "see" that there is umlaut in the domainname, an 
encoded it (internal, so the user did'nt see it) to puny code and ask 
the default nameserver for the domainname in punycode

Is this correct ?

Best regards,
