A problem about the UNISCRIBE: Unicode Blocks like Tai Tham, Myammar Ext. A and Chakma can not be displayed correctly under the Windows or in the Microsoft Office

I am a graduate of a Institute, there is a part of workon my hand: build a Brahmis script font complying with the Unicode standard.
There is a paragraph of text for example:
"ᨠ+ᩕ = ᨠᩕ ᨫ+᩠+ᨬ = ᨫ᩠ᨬ ᨾ+ᩱ+ᨲ+ᩕ+ᩦ = ᨾᩱᨲᩕᩦ"
(\u1A20+\u1A55 = \u1A20\u1A55 \u1A2B+\u1A60+\u1A2C = \u1A2B\u1A60\u1A2C \u1A3E+\u1A71+\u1A32+\u1A55+\u1A66 = \u1A3E\u1A71\u1A32\u1A55\u1A66)
Blocks like TAI THAM(LANNA, U+1A20), MYAMMAR EXT. A(U+AA60), CHAKMA(U+11100) can not be displayed correctly in
WINDOWS 8 Customer Preview
Just with the UNISCRIBE dll file under C:\WINDOWS\system32(OR sysWOW64) replaced by
usp10.dll Ver 1.473.4067.0,
The text written by TAI THAM(LANNA) script can be displayed in correct form.
But it still makes no sense even if I have replaced the usp10.dll under C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14.
The text is still displayed in incorrect form.

The font I made has enough information of GPOS/GSUB to support Contextual Ligatures,

with it the text can be displayed correctly under UBUNTU 12.04 Beta.
But it still can not be displayed correctly under none of OpenOffice \ LibreOffice \ YozoOffice.

I think this forum is more appropriate for this issue:
Please try it.

Old versions of OpenOffice does not support Opentype. You should use Graphite instead.
