[PyQt] PyQt support for Myanmar scripts (Burma)

I'm developing a PyQt4 application here in England, and I know someone 
has been trying it out with Myanmar script, with not very pleasing 
results. Their comment was:

    /Unfortunately it doesn't handle Myanmar script well at all - many
    frequent characters are not even displaying when keyboarded; others
    are displayed but not rendered properly.////When I paste in Myanmar
    Unicode text that has been properly keyboarded in Word, all the
    characters show up, but are not rendered properly...


Does anyone have any experience with this script? Any comments about 
complex script support in PyQt in general? I guess my real question is, 
would I see better results with Myanmar if I moved from PyQt4 to PyQt5 
with its ICU libraries? Thanks for any comments.

Best regards,
