I am trying to: display the burmese characters correctly.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: the characters displaying correctly as shown in my image Burmese_Correct

Instead, I got: strange outlined circles as shown in my image Burmese_Web

Hi, Lisa.

Thank you for contacting the WPML support forum.

This issue is probably not caused by WPML.
To test if this is correct, could you please temporarily deactivate WPML?
After deactivating the Burmese posts and pages will still show and you will be able to see if the issue persists or not.

Burmese is a unique language with unique characters (fonts).
I've searched the web for similar issues and found the following from StackOverflow.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51223323/how-to-display-content-for-websites-in-myanmar-burmese-font
There is an explanation about this issue there.
At the following link, you can also read what needs to be done to include the Burmese fonts.

I hope that this information will help you to solve the problem.

Regards,
Itamar.
