    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 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.
