Khmer Font Broken in Microsoft Word with OS X Sierra

With the Sierra OS X update on the Mac, Khmer Unicode no longer fully renders correctly in Microsoft Word. This is a regression bug as Khmer Unicode previously worked on Mac OS X El Capitan.

Sample Khmer text that renders incorrectly in Microsoft Word:
ស្រស់
ប្រើ

Please fix this ASAP as it makes Microsoft Word useless to those of us who use it with the Khmer language.

        I request Microsoft to fix the support of Khmer Unicode rendering on Microsoft Products running on MacOS. Microsoft is everywhere and best known for its very user-friendly office products, but yet requires fixing to make it work better for the community.
