I have just discovered that all ff, fi, fl (and similar
ones) ligature glyphs aren't marked with the liga tag
for automatic OpenType substitution.

I guess they should be enabled to be able to use
ligatures with OpenType-aware applications (such as XeTeX).

Thanks for your excellent work,

Pablo

    Hmm.. OpenType fonts contain liga substitutions for ff, fi etc. Is the problem caused by their DFLT(dflt)
    script/language tag?

    Sorry, I overlooked this. You're right. But none of XeTeX or
    Pango are able to detect the ff ligature (and similar ones).

    Let me ask this question in the XeTeX list and I will reply
    with their answer.

    Thanks,

    Pablo

    OK, this is due to DFLT script tag, I shall change it to latn in the next version.
