I have an alternate alphabet font that I use as a replacement for the Latin alphabet. I use it to keep a pen and paper journal in English, so my family is not able to read my private thoughts. I also keep one on windows and have started migrating it to linux by installing my font on some of my virtual machine distros. Now some people call the letters glyphs. In the old chineese kung fu movies you would always see people writing on wood or paper with a paint and a brush making those beautiful characters. That is the way I want the data written to the hard drive, so that the file can only be viewed in my alphabet and no other.
