Padauk SIL Font (Endorsed)
Current version: 2.6.1, released June 2009
Padauk is a fully capable Unicode 5.1 font supporting all the Myanmar characters in the standard. Thus it provides support for minority languages as well, but in a Burmese rendering style.
Padauk includes the necessary Graphite smarts to render Myanmar script correctly. Padauk also has OpenType tables which allow it to be rendered using a basic shaping engine and so allows the font to be used in such applications as Microsoft Word.
