I thought that ligatures are just a matter of the font
but not the unicode representation?
When I write a text which contains the two letters "fi"
they should be two separate characters in my unicode string
no matter whether they will be printed as a ligature  on the printer or screen.
So ligatures should not influence string encoding in FPC.
Or am I missing something here?
