    Verisign used to do something similar to bootstrap their RACE-based
    IDN testbed a couple of years ago.  You got a synthesized A record for
    every domain name which contained a non-ASCII octet, and that web page
    served an ActiveX control which installed a RACE helper in Internet
    Explorer.  But my memory is a bit foggy. 8-/

What I remember is that it checked whether the 8th-bit was on (or not).
