RE: Klingon orthography (was: Okrand at qep'a')

DloraH ( [Hol po'wI']

Being able to mark proper nouns somehow would be nice, especially for beginners.  Too many times in
Klingon and other languages I tried looking up words and either couldn't find them or became
confused over what I found because it didn't make sense, only to later realize it was a name.
Whether it is Klingon or Arabic or Thai (and I think Hindi), names are not capitalised; although in
Thai there is a particular word that would precede a persons name.

Thai placing a word in front of the name is good because than you are aware of it whether it is
spoken or written.  You can't hear an upper-case marking the beginning of a name.  (... except for
Klingon q/Q.)
