I am working on a two language website www.eprpinformation.org. The Myanmar version automatically changes the font family for body text to Zwaygi-One which work wonderfully well on IE, Chrome and Firefox.
Except, that is, for input fields. For some reason these display the unknown font characters even though looking at the css for the input, the correct font family is being applied. Please see screenshot >> http://eprpinformation.org/images/firefox-zwaygi-font-issue.jpg.
Any help would be appreciate.

If I paste some text in the search bar and text fields on the Help Desk page then a right-click and Inspect shows that the Zawgyi-One is used for Myanmar text (I pasted the Zawygi Font text: တိုင္းရင္းသား). I haven't made changes to the default font as that shouldn't be necessary. At least on Linux where I am it shows that for input field font-family: -moz-use-system-font; is used, so it is possible that the selected system font doesn't work properly with Myanmar characters.
thanks for the quick response! It didn't quite solve the problem but it put me on the right track.
Turns out that the css rule was not being applied to select or input elements so I made that explicit and it now works fine.
