People use special fonts all the time. They are more efficient to obtain a
special look and feel. In fact some UTF-8 pages my want to use special
fonts when they display characters that a user is not likely to have fonts
installed. For example a travel site may want to display the native names
of sights. It may use a script that the user does not have a font to cover.
Even if the user does not read the language they may be able to recognize
From one of my sites:

I think that if you have a Klingon web site that uses UTF-8 and the PUA with
your own font is very Unicode savvy.
