Re: Klingon orthography

Looking at the original samples again, the IPA is hard to read (were the 
aspirations lost on <t> and <p>?), the casing orthography of IPA is harder to 
read (capitals of weird symbols just add more weird symbols), the 
"Americanist" type sample is fairly clear, the words are well separated (a problem 
with the previous two); with casing glottals it's another case of thin boxes 
being hard to read.)
The samples with fewer unusual symbols are a lot easier to read.  
Diacritical marks are hard to make out on my screen and font size, so those are hard 
to read too.

I like the Klingon way of NOT capitalizing names and sentence-initial 
positions, so I favor the cased samples a lot less than the others.
