Many fonts for original Toki Pona writing systems include a feature called ASCII transcription,[1] where a run of characters typed in sitelen Lasina is visually substituted with a single glyph. This simulates the effects of an IME without the need to install software beyond the font, but unlike these, it does not actually replace the underlying text. Other ASCII characters are commonly used for additional features in the writing system or font, such as the hyphen (-) being used for sitelen pona combined glyphs.
