Hebrew has own css declaration for font in core. Myanmar also should have css font family declaration. I’ve opened ticket #29664 since last year and no progress. There is no Myanmar glymps or characters in Open Sans font. Most operating system do not have proper Myanmar font.
Myanmar translation stopped since 4.1. Now I’m organizing meet up on next Saturday 19, Dec 2015 for localization and WordPress community in Myanmar.
I’ve opened a ticket #29664 two month ago. No one response. Today I’ve attached a patch file to support Myanmar script font-family.
I’m looking for a way to embed google web font for Myanmar.
I want to know if it is possible to embed in WP core or do I need to release Locale specific Package with embedded fonts.
Is there a way to add Word Break rules js file in WP core?
Please create Burmese project for iOS
here I explained some issue with my_MM.
Currently mya.wordpress.org is showing old translation with old encoding. I request to deploy new translation from 4.0 package.
And site title need to change. I would like to change from “ြမန်မာ | Burmese” to “မြန်မာ | Burmese”
Concerning with my_MM, some of you might already know that we have long discussion and arguments about encoding when I released first localized WordPress package. I’ve choose user preferred pseudo standard encoding over Unicode consortium standard because no OS or devices supported Myanmar script when I start localizing WordPress. But now all major OS support Myanmar Scripts and they use Unicode consortium standard encoding. Android Kitkat support complex rendering system for Myanmar script, but not included Myanmar script fonts by default. Moreover MariaDB 10.0 support myanmar collation.
Since WordPress 3.5, I’ve been considering to use Unicode Consoritum Standard. But a lot of things need to do before changing to new encoding. I’ve developed encoding converter and change old encoding contents to new encoding. Starting from WordPress 4.0, localization package for my_MM will use Unicode Consortium standard encoding.
I have another thing to consider. Although I choose Unicode Consortium standard encoding, more than 90% of the web users do not use that standard. 100% of mobile device users use only non standard encoding. Even popular mobile device vendor such as Samsung, HTC, Huawei sell devices supported and fully localized with non standard encoding font called Zawgyi-One.
So I don’t know what to do with that non standard encoding.
Should I request separate locale site for non standard encoding for more user support?
@nacin Is it possible to embed language specific fonts in core or in language pack?
Most of the major OS included Myanmar(Burmese) script fonts now.(e.g Windows 8 and later version, OSX Lion and later, many Linux OS) But implementation is different between vendors and not reliable. No mobile OS support Myanmar script. I wish google web fonts for Burmese included in WordPress package. Currently google has early access fonts for Myanmar script. Here is the link http://www.google.com/fonts/earlyaccess
And another thing is adding functionality for proper word breaking. https://github.com/andjc/jquery.mymr/ is a jquery library to use for Burmese Scripts wordbreaking, list markers etc. It is developed by one of Mozilla developers. Will it be possible to include in my_MM language pack?
I have few questions as a language validator
1. Do I still need to make deploy request from rosetta ?
2. How is the plan going with bbPress plugin instead separate install?
3. How WordPress api work for 4.0? Is it automatic or manual? ( Because my language not listed in installation screen even if I’ve completed all translation.)
4. How can I change locale site title? ( I would like to change from “ြမန်မာ | Burmese” to “မြန်မာ | Burmese” )
Please open iOS project for Myanmar(my_MM)

Request for feedback from East Asian languages for WordPress 3.4 core modifications.
