Hi Theppitak.

Sorry for the late answer.

I have really low experience about these issues and tend to think that
here the fault is mostly of the Java Runtime Environment than of JOSM

Unfortunately I cannot see Thai fonts even with defoma installed. But my
native script is the latin one, so I'm not very expert with managing
fonts. Could you please provide me an OSM file with some strings that
you can see with defoma, can't see without defoma? And can you tell me
the name of a font that contains the required glyphs?

Thanks, Giovanni.
