Please remove 'letter-spacing: -2px' CSS rule from headings. It breaks Burmese rendering on Firfox 19.

Summary: [my] Remove negative letter spacing header (h1-h5) → [my] Remove negative letter spacing in headers (h1-h5)
It's not easy to fix it without the context of how it should look like (expected result) for a non-burmese assignee. If you can attach a screenshot of the expected result then it can be done rather easily.

Also, the CSS rule is the general one, subjected to all locale. For specific locale related customization, it's suggested to edit the theme-CSS file of the WordPress deployment (that is the particular Myanmar website hosting.)

Jan (CC'd & assigned) has admin access to Myanmar server, I guess; if not then poke XioNoX & get it fixed.

This brings an important problem: Community websites need to properly localized. That means developing sub themes / CSS fixes to deliver multilingual content.
Thanks for the screenshot.

As I see it in this case, it's a browser issue. Any other modern browser (including current Nightly) renders both the styles (with or without letter-spacing) perfectly fine. So, it's not a theming issue, and should rather be (has been) fixed in Gecko.

I agree with the point that Community websites has to be properly localized; and we've added a few l10n sweetnesses into it (RTL support, default charset to UTF8 etc.) explicitly for that. But this one particularly is a browser-version dependent bug and I don't think there's anything to be done on the theme to fix it (the theme _is not_ broken).

The appropriate solution to this is to remove the letter-spacing on the Myanmar site's WP CSS for the time being, until whichever of Firefox version the regression stops (20? 21?), gets to be released as stable. There's no point changing the theme-codebase for that - cause for almost all other languages it works perfectly fine & is supposed to work perfectly fine.
Should this bug belong to IT Requests component? It seems like a specific site problem not a request for Community IT.
