Looking at the various pIqaD fonts, I believe it is a pity there are so
many.

All these variations, would raise the question: Since someone, for obvious
reasons, can't learn them all, then which one should he learn ?

Let alone the fact, that due to the way some of these characters are
designed, if someone was to write them free-hand, several of these
characters could be confused one for the other.

Anyway, I have learned (or is it learnt ?) the kli pIqaD, which appears
when someone has selected the upper-case letters.

Although, now that I have learned (or learnt) it, I don't know where to use
it.
