In e-mails from the authors, read here as pure text, ligatures such as 'fi' and 
'fl' appear as 'I dunno' characters: blank squares. When pasted into 
FrameMaker, the ligatures render correctly. However, FrameMaker puts a word 
break around them: for example, double-clicking on 'flow' highlights just the 
'ow' part.

Running a global find/replace on 'fl' and 'fi' and replacing them with 
themselves, i.e. 'f' and 'l' or 'f'' and 'i' typed into the Replace box, fixes 
the issue: FrameMaker can find the ligatures and correctly replace them with 
the relevant two-character pair.
