Re: Latin ligatures and Unicode

>Say that I often deal with fonts that have only ligature
       pairs, given the choice of ff i or f fi, I always prefer
          ff i,
       but my colleague prefers f fi. We both prefer ffi as a single
       ligature if it exists in the font. What markup gives each of
       us the results we prefer? For &=ZWL, the answer is f&fi for
       me, and ff&i for my colleague. Note that ZWNL is not useful for
       this case.

       And note that the solution to this problem is effectively the
       same regardless of whether ligation is controlled using
       out-of-band markup/styles/formatting or using a character ZWL.
