Speaking of Windows, he might want to try the True Type Font at
http://www.myanmar.com/font.html on Windows 2000. It looks like they are
not using Unicode but some kind of code page, however, True Type fonts are
by definition Unicode encoded. It would be a matter of re-encoding. Maybe
he could contact the people who created the font.
I don't know of a Linux solution. I suspect that the Myanmar Linux market
is smaller so we may have to wait for it to expand.

However, a subset of Unicode may well meet Myanmar local requirements.

I took this statement to refer to "most Myanmar professionals". Is there
in fact a version of Windows localized for Myanmar?
