Hm, this whole concept seems stupid if you ask me. The æ, though a
ligature, is a separate character altogether; Nobody should care whether
it's a ligature, a digraph, or an elephant for that matter. And the same
goes for "ij"... Somebody actually made a SEPARATE entry for ij? How
stupid is that? It's just as easily written i + j. This is like the old
Macintosh encoding, that had a separate character for "...". Stooooopid.
