    I don't believe it's a security issue. The misrendering should be
    consistent and preserve differences.

    (usp10.dll) supports both of khmer and burmese. So, We tried it with burmese

    Which version is this? Service Pack 2 didn't seem to upgrade to usp10.dll.
    I'm using an intermediate version that supports Khmer but not Burmese.

    The Indic list is probably more appropriate. (To join, send message to with subject 'subscribe indic'.) There's an attempt to
    get a consistent resolution to the rendering problems.
