I'm trying to set up an account with a domain that has the new domain type that allows foreign characters in the domain. However, it just strips out the character when I try to save it? The letter that is removed is 'æ' in Norwegian.
do you mean IDN domains from verisign? You cannot use domain on native language in *nix system. Instead you should convert it using "punycode " in just latin chachters and fill out domain field when you create account. Puny convertor can be found here: http://www.bluerider.com/idn/
