I included ff, fi, fj and fl in the first verse.
The second verse has ct and st.
Regarding the name Gabriola. I note from the Microsoft web page that I mentioned previously that the typeface is named after Gabriola Island.
I tried http://maps.google.com and found that Streetview is available for Gabriola Island.
The link below is for the place on the island that I tried first. There are magnificent trees.
I notice from the pdf that there are at least three alternate glyphs for the letter d in the font.
