The HTML may be valid, but the link still doesn’t match the
syntax for URIs. This is an IDN, and all links (in the HTML)
*MUST* be in the form:
This is also the hostname to use in vhosts, etc.

User agents MAY (but need not) render that in the non-ASCII
form. Lynx doesn’t (well mine – I think there’s an option
to link libidn now).
