Brief Overview: ICANN is releasing for public comment version 3 of the Maximal Starting Repertoire (MSR-3: HTML, XML). This version is upwardly compatible with MSR-2 and adds three code points each to the repertoires of Han and Latin scripts. Under the Procedure to Develop and Maintain Label Generation Rules for the Root Zone with Respect to IDN Labels [PDF, 772 KB], the MSR is the starting point for the work by community based Generation Panels which are developing the proposals for relevant scripts for the Root Zone Label Generation Rules (RZ-LGR). The contents of MSR-3 and the detailed rationale behind its development are described in MSR-3-Overview and Rationale [PDF, 1.1 MB].
