ThanLwin is a Myanmar Unicode font which covers the Burmese characters in Unicode, though it does not yet support the Mon, Karen, Shan code points.

This font is currently only an alpha release. Please report any problems that you find.

The font has been tested to work with the following rendering engines:

The font was designed using ligatures for the reordered glyphs. This drastically simplifies the OpenType and Graphite rules, which makes it a much faster font than Padauk. It also increases the number of rendering engines which support the font. The downside is that the font file is significantly larger, but this is much reduced if the font is compressed in a format like WOFF.
