The world wide web took an historic step forward today as the first non-Latin web addresses went live, according to the BBC. Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are the first countries to have so-called "country codes" written in Arabic scripts. Hopefully, as more people surf the web and see these addresses in their web browsers they will feel a little less english-centric in attitude. In time, who knows, this may nudge a few more of us to take up learning other languages.
