Steve thanks for your reply. It helps, though I am trying do write a less abstract statement. Would you say that the following statement conveys a correct understanding of the matter of fact: ---- the Internet protocol contains numerous parameters, for example to identify the character set of a text, or a operating system. (A character set is a set of conventions to code a traditional alphabet, e.g. latin, cyrillic, japanese). The values of these parameters need to be assigned uniquely. ICANN/PSO is to make those unique assignments and to maintain a registry of the currently assigned values. (here I am cutting & pasting statements from IANA's web site) mario ps do you have a two lines definition of what a port is?
