Fontforge shows no ligatures for Adobe Garamond; however, it does show ligatures for the Tallys fonts. So that probably explains why there are no ligatures.
However, the font has a lot of kerning pairs, but I don't seem to be able turn those on/off with the \definefontfeature directive as I could do in the Tallys font. And back to the original problem, en dash, em dash, quotes that work in other fonts don't work here. I can use \emdash, \endash, \quotesingle, etc., but this creates more work when you get text from an author and is more prone to error. So is this a font problem? Or is this something I'm doing wrong (and what)? Thanks once again, Bart On Friday 21 November 2008 10:00:14 am Mojca Miklavec wrote: > On Fri, Nov 21, 2008 at 5:47 PM, Bart C.
