Does anyone have the same problem with Safari? If not the issue is bugs in Firefox. I clicked on the Browser Language Test and was not able to read the Thai characters on top. They all show up as question marks.

The 100% guaranteed method for displaying Thai characters in ALL modern browsers is to use the "@font-face" function in CSS.

First you will need to download a font file and place it on your webserver.
Then add CSS like the following example:

font-family: 'Garuda';

src:url('Garuda.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
url('Garuda.ttf') format('truetype'),
url('Garuda.svg#Garuda') format('svg');

font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;

This example will load the Garuda font file with extensions .eot (for IE4+), .ttf (for FF 3.5+, Chrome 4+, Opera 10+, Safari 3.1+) or .svg (for iPhone, iPad) depending on the browser.
Replace the src.url with the path to the file on the webserver.
Now for each "p" element on your website you want to display Thai text, just add the following CSS

p { font-family:Garuda; }

Free to use font packs can be downloaded from but only in ttf format.
