    The bigger question is, can your software access the ligatures? We're we're
    working on a font that supports the ligatures using either OpenType or
    Graphite, hoping to having have it out around August. (You can get a peek
    at an alpha -- the page says beta, but against my better judgment -- at
     I think this build has OT and Graphite tables, but am not positive.)
