Yes, although I can think of some traditional Greek ligatures that would be hard to break
into shape sequences that obviously correspond to the underlying characters. Knowing which
parts of a Latin fi ligature correspond to which underlying characters, and hence which
might be rendered as separate and independently coloured shaped, is not difficult.
Something like the attached graphic is trickier.
