Ooh, I hadn’t really thought of this before... how much work would it take to use this code to enable Latin ligatures (fi, fl, etc.) when the typeface supports them? I currently handle this in XSLT and it’s a PITA, and also lacks information about actual typeface support for advanced ligatures (ffi, ct, etc.). ~Chris -- Chris Maden, text nerd <URL: http://crism.maden.org/ > “Be wary of great leaders.
