Now I can make new layout with all basic features needed for Myanmar Language.

Vowel E can type first before consonant. Kinzi can type after stacked consonants.

Attached new layout file.

I've tested m17n IM for Myanmar Language. It was written based on unicode 4.0 standard. Since Unicode 5.0 Myanmar Character code points and encoding methods changed a lot. I've modified mim files on my system to reflect the changes in Unicode 5.2 and newer.
But current IM for Myanmar is not suitable for everyday use because some characters need re positioning and correcting sequences. I don't know how to implement this features. If someone guide me or help me, I could make a better Keyboard Input Method for Myanmar Language.
I've attached my modified file in report. And another problem is font layout tables for Myanmar are not complete. Need to add more rules. None of Myanmar fonts could run in QT.
