BTW: saw and please integrate some kind of this wonderfull solution
http://phlymail.com/de/downloads/idna-convert.html

Through this class, you can hunt through each URL, you always get back a result if any special characters are present, just the same. The class will also convert parameters correctly to (what the converter at the DENIC don´t can).

This is so critical that it is almost a bug. Why is the parser so strict with URLs? It should match any link starting with http:// or https://, and should ignore full stops after links (and obviously be XXS proof).
