      There can be, but they're not required. There aren't any on the _LotR_
      title page or in the Ring-inscription, but there are on the Moria Gate and
      in the texts in _The Road Goes Ever On_.

      They're legit. See especially the tengwar texts in _The Road Goes Ever On_
      and _Sauron Defeated_ for examples.
