Smart Unicode Font for the Myanmar Script


System/X11/Fonts

As part of the Unicode development effort, the encoding for the Myanmar script is being extended. These changes are being voted on as part of a PDAM and as such fonts that support these encoding extensions are not officially Unicode compliant with any current version of Unicode. Padauk conforms to the proposed extensions in anticipation of their being accepted into the Unicode standard.

Users wishing to find a font capable of supporting Unicode data today should look elsewhere. They should also be made aware that assuming the extensions are accepted into Unicode, then they will need to transcode their data to continue to be conforming.

Padauk supports the Myanmar script extensions including changes to how Burmese is encoded, Sgaw Karen and Mon. Padauk continues to be developed so should you find problems with the font, please send feedback to SIL_fonts@sil.org. Requirements

Padauk includes the necessary Graphite smarts to render Myanmar script correctly. Thus if you want to use this font you will need the Graphite libraries and Graphite capable applications or graphics extensions.
