    If you're using Windows, with the latest versions of Uniscribe and Code2000,
    typing <c, ZWJ, t> into Notepad will produce a very pleasing ct ligature
    (likewise for st, ff, fl and fi ligatures). As several people have stated, there
    is no need to either encode the ct ligature or resort to the PUA. (PUA Bad !
    Smart fonts and rendering systems Good !)
