Here's something interesting. (I've been ignoring 
this thread but decided to give it a try)
I use Eudora, last version, and I get a warning 
that the url is syntactically invalid. That 
doesn't surprise me. I can see the tilde over the 
n, and it even carries over when I copy as above.

As others have said, Firefox changes it to: http://www.xn--maana-pta.com/

Copying it from Eudora to Firefox worked fine, 
too, with the same 'translation'. Not sure why 
it's not working for you, Marghanita.

I'm using FF3.5.6.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the 
world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
