Font problem

Hello everyone. I would like to ask you all a question. I am trying to create an epub file using my language (Burmese), but, it seems Sigils does not support my font. Is there any way to solve that issue?

This is my targeted result, and I typed those letters in notepad. When I copy those words to Sigils, it showed me like this.

Could you advice me how do I correct it? I don't have any knowledge in html or CSS. Thank you so much.

I also attached font file here.

Sincerely,
Speaknut

You need CSS code to properly embed a font. Your first course of action should be to google font embedding in epubs to learn how this is done.

Alternatively Sigil has a plugin that will try to build the required css from the font itself.

See the plugin index here for links to the CSSFromFonts plugin.

Thank you sir. If there any tutorial on that? because I don't know CSS either. I want to follow every single step. Thank you.

Have a look at my tutorial (see my signature). It's a little outdated, but I think it might be useful for you.

it is not (just?) css problem.
this font does not have myanmar selected in supported unicode ranges.
sigil for windows (probably) cannot show those glyphs even though they exist in font file.

Have a look at the attached epub test file. I embedded your font, created a stylesheet and assigned your font as the body font. Then I picked some comment in what I beleive is Burmese from some website and put it in the body of the xhtml file. Looks Ok in Preview and Book View, but not in Code View...

You control the font used in Codeview by Sigil Preferences. Make sure you are using a font in Codeview that supports the unicode ranges/characters you want to see and is fixed size like Courier.

I tried to change the code view font in the Preferences, but this font was not listed. Maybe it is not fixed size, I don't know.
