See Also: UriSection Members
The existing Uri class has been extended to provide support for International Resource Identifiers (IRI) and Internationalized Domain Names. Current users will not see any change from the .NET Framework 2.0 behavior unless they specifically enable IRI and IDN. This ensures application compatibility with prior versions of the .NET Framework.
The configuration settings for IRI and IDN can be retrieved using the System.Configuration.UriSection class.
