Description

I explained current issues and changes in Burmese/Myanmar Package on polyglot. here and here.
Since future release of WordPress language pack will be automatic, it is better to include language specific changes in core or in language pack.

here is current css file in WordPress 4.0 Myanmar Package
here is google's earlyaccess webfont.
here is jquery library for proper wordbreak and Myanmar script support.

@herzcthu, specifying Myanmar Font in Core is not good way. If we do that, we need to add a number of web fonts! (For Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Russian...)
Japanese team is handling multibyte-related issues and disabling web font with WP Multibyte Patch.
How about including a plugin, like Japanese package?

@extendwings: It is a good idea to have this in core. The same that WP Multibyte Patch should find it's way in core too. This so that the language packs really only need to have the po/mo files.

Most South-east Asian languages such as Khmer, Lao and Burmese still have limited & unreliable support across platforms. To make the matter worse, one or more non-standard encodings are still in wide-spread use on the web, which makes the core wordpress inaccessible without specifying the font explicitly.

So, I really recommend adding web fonts/font specifications in the core, so that the users can start using wordpress straightaway after installation without any extra actions.
