    I'm not sure what is meant here.

    If Vista Notepad implements font instructions for non-discretionary
    features using Uniscribe, that's fine. But, if Vista Notepad substitutes
    Latin (or even Armenian) ligature presentation forms for "normal"
    strings in the display for any font which has glyphs mapped to those
    presentation form characters regardless of individual font OpenType
    table instructions, that's not so good.
