    In reference to figure 6 (attached with message) in "Unicode Standard
    Annex #15 Unicode Normalization Forms", the fi ligature (U+FB01) is
    not decomposed for NFD (Normalization form D). I am just confused why
    it is not decomposed to "f" and "i". Is it not difficult for search
    algorithms to search all the words containing f (U+0066) if the data
    is stored in NFD?

    Best Regards,
