This document describes the Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) Character Table to be used by NeuLevel in the .BIZ TLD registry for the registration of .BIZ domains in the German language. This table is in compliance with the ICANN Guidelines for the Implementation of Internationalized Domain Names and is intended for publication in the IANA IDN Character Table Registry.

The following is the German Script Character Table that will be used for the .BIZ registry. Note that only the "sanitized" character based on the NamePrep [RFC3491] specifications are included. It is expected that implementers first "sanitize" an IDN according to the NamePrep specifications before applying this table.

The table will use the convention U+XXXX to denote Unicode codepoints for each of the accepted characters for German Script IDN registrations.
