This is going off-topic, but...

I really dislike the fact that the mapping makes the qaghwI' look like

(I'm ignoring the digits, which I believe also aren't from the show.)
But to Klingons, the qaghwI' is just like any other letter, and it's
too much of a coincidence that it looks just like the Latin symbol
that Terrans use to transcribe it. (Of course, we can retcon that the
reason Terrans use the {'} for qaghwI' is because that's what it looks
