this has nothing to do with encoding - if at all it uses the wrong term/word, but that would need feedback from actual users of the language, as there are different terms..

Hi,
Thanks for your follow up.
It's just NOT the wrong word/term. It was encoded with Zawgyi instead of Unicode while LibreOffice itself was encoded throughout with Myanmar Standards Unicode.
See here for brief info.

Secondly, I AM THAT actual user of the language you're referring to. That's why I can tell the difference.
Again, thanks for your reply. You're feel free to contact further since I've been using this office suite since OpenOffice days.
Regards,
Winston
