Interesting, too, is that all of those are 1-point tiles in Scrabble, except for D (2 points) and H (a whopping 4 points, more than C, M, B, or P).
I've put together a fair number of acrostic puzzles in my time, and one thing that surprised me early is what an awful lot of H's there are to deal with, due to its appearing in many very common words.
I'm smart and I want respect.
