I'm not sure there is enough unity in the Klingon community yet to claim
"wide" acceptance to ANYTHING. There are very few people who can actually
read romanized Klingon. Of those, only a small percentage can read ANYBODY's
Klingon font. HolQeD has, in this realm, a wide distribution, so Dr. Schoen's
font (or Okuda's font) is as close to a widely accepted font as you are
likely to get. I know of at least one KAG that uses more than one font, but
only one person in the group actually speaks Klingon. (Explain THAT!)

IMHO, this is the best font yet to represent tlhIngan Hol. I consider it
progress to get tlh down to one character.
