    My copy of Photoshop 7 has an interesting image in its (HTML format)
    help file, page <1_16_4_13.html> on "Using ligatures and old style
    numerals". It shows three examples of «Type with Ligatures option
    unselected and selected»: "ct", "fi" and "fh".

    The bad part of it is that the ligated characters shown (in the sencond
    and third examples) seem to include a long "s" instead of an "f"...
    <ty_06.gif> attached for reference.

    I note that Adobe Photoshop has OTOH quite deep and (apparently) well
    designed support for some relatively complex font manipulations, as f.i.
    East Asian width and composing oddities.
