> Problem description:
> Java renders Myanmar script incorrectly. Some glyphs are not combined,
> which makes text unreadable.
> For example, this glyph ကြ is made of two characters U+1000 and
> U+103C. Java renders two separate glyphs.
> Enable ligatures or kerning on the font to get the correct rendering.
> The fix:
> Enables complex layout for base Myanmar characters (U+1000-U+109F).
> Provides fallback font on Windows.
> On Linux, fontconfig handles the fallback.
> I ran awt/font tests, no new failures found.
