OS X Lion comes with unicode Burmese fonts already installed. If you cannot read a web page, it may be in a non-standard encoding requiring a custom font, which may or may not work if you can find it. Please provide the url of the site which does not work, and also tell me whether you can see this site OK:
Tom Gewecke, hello,
Thank you for your response.
Yes, I can see the site you mention OK.
I had been seeing the Irrawaddy news site OK. But I did not realise that I was reading from the font. I thought that it was a scanned or other photographic type of page.
If I cannot read a website or it appears garbled, I will let you know.
Thank you again.
Hi. I can read the burmese font on the link that u provided. http://my.wikipedia.org/wiki/ဗဟိုစာမျက်နှာ
but it is not showing correctly on facebook.
how can i correct it?
It sounds like a facebook problem, about which you would have to ask them. Could you post a screenshot here of what you are seeing?
The posters on this site seem to be using the non-standard zawgyi encoding to type their text. This encoding missuses codepoints which belong to the Shan Myanmar script for typing standard Myanmar. Apple only provides fonts for Unicode standard Myanmar. To see this text properly you would probably have to download and install the non-standard zawgyi font and set your browser to use it instead of the normal Unicode font.

"Switch" may not be easy as u think. majority of facebookers use zawgyi (non unicode) rather than standard unicode and extremely familiar with it. In order to switch, all the devices on every platform must have the same standard myanmar unicode pre installed.
You can be sure that iOS devices will never have a non-Unicode myanmar font pre-installed.
I know that though zawgyi will only be ditched when all platforms had true unicode myanmar font. To do that, we need a changer who can change non unicodes from ground up and hoping apple could do that. Only hTC butterfly and hTC one are available in market with true unicode but no one really use them so hTC doesn't become a changer.
