The "bold" and "italics" refer not to Klingon, but to how definitions are
displayed in Latin script (Klingon in bold, English translation in italics,
like in TKD).

--- begin quote ---
“Writing system” in general ({pIqaD} is just one of many in the
world/galaxy) is {ghItlhmeH Ho’DoS} “system for writing.”  ({Ho’DoS} is
“system, method, manner, technique.”  {pat} is “system” in the physical [or
physical-like] sense, as in “computer system” [hardware or hardware and
software together] or “transporter system” or “propulsion system.” {Ho’DoS}
is not that.)

For “font” or “typeface,” you can use {ngutlh tu’qom} “written character
appearance/form/shape.”

For “bold,” Maltz suggested {pI’} “fat.”  For “Italics,” he said {chongHa’}
“un-vertical.”
