The same occurs for most symbols that I've tried, including proper character sets like
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Unicode_chart_Myanmar

However adding a ascii character after the symbol '(symbol)a' fixes the problem.

This sounds like a duplicate of bug 51661 to me.

Letters from Myanmar Unicode block work for me (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=%E1%80%80&title=Special%3ASearch&fulltext=1). This isn't a duplicate of bug 51661, but of bug 47770.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
