ConScript Unicode Registry for Klingon, Tolkien

|

"ConScripts" are scripts invented for constructed languages, those languages created for a science fiction or fantasy story. Famous example of ConScripts include Tengwar, Cirth (both for languages invented by Tolkien) and Klingon.

In Unicode, these are handled in the Private Use area, but the ConScript Registry includes semi-formal protocols for assigning these codes.

That way the user base can build fonts which are compatible with each other. Additional information can be found at http://www.evertype.com/standards/csur/
