I suspect this might relate to a simple class of one-dimensional
cellular automata
with two possible values for each cell (0 or 1), and rules depending
on them...
but I don't quite understand how they work.

Of particular interest was how in IE browser the search term "dànké."
placed into the address bar morphs to URL "http://xn--dnk-9ka1c./"
only momentarily but then generates a google search for the term
"dànké." via the below URL.


What processes govern these morphs? Can someone give me a step by step

I was also interested in how just "ànké." converts to the URL "http://
xn--nk-iia2b./" in the address bar, but then does not go on to
generate an "ànké." query like "d"ànké." did. Why might this be?

I am also further interested in how a search for the term "xn--

calls up the below text:
