The Norwegian registry NORID carried out some small alterations to their terms and conditions. One of which is to also allow the usage of the accented letter ï (i umlaut) in .no domain names. Apparently they only now discovered that this letter is being used in one of the official languages spoken in Norway, exactly 13 years after allowing the usage of accented letters for .no domain names.

But then again, this might be not such a big surprise since the letter ï in Norway is only used in the Southern Sami language (Sørsamisk), which is spoken by merely 500 people.
