I just finished looking at the Myanmar Scripts and Languages FAQ.

A few comments.

Most of the questions and answers are specific to the Myanmar (Burmese)

When discussing the ad hoc fonts, it would be useful to indicate that the
ones already mentioned are Burmese specific, and that each of the major
languages has its own ad hoc font(s). Mon,  Shan and Sgaw Karen & Western
Pwo Karen have their own specific fonts.

It is also worth warning that most detectors and convertors are language
specific. If your data has content in a range of Myanmar script languages,
the results from such detectors and converters will be less than ideal.
