The alphabet has been made from Jawi Alphabet and no fictional characters has been added the reason why is to make it possible to type in a regular Jawi Keyboard using Honso Keyboard. It was claimed that Maharlika is the most success alphabet compare to the first one, Bigkas and the current Official Alphabet, Glodelania Cyrillic due to the fact that it is too accurate to the the parent alphabet, Jawi Alphabet.
