Exactly Doitsu! How about that : I previously went to the trouble of embedding my font for nothing. Just by luck the klingon glyphs are already present in the fallback builtin font and since I am already using the U+F8D0 to U+F8FF encoding, once I remove my embedded font everything is still rendered perfectly for that "ordinary" book.

But my original problem remains, it is within a "dictionary" that I want to display these glyphs. And I think that unless I can produce a KF8 dictionary (Kindlegen seeing indexing only creates a KF7 mobi) the fallback font is not used. See Chelloveck :
