Is there something that needs to be enabled to get ligatures working on 
Windows? I'm using Microsoft's Cascadia Code for example in VS 2019 
where ligatures work correctly, but in Lazarus nothing happens. The 
ligatures have the same widths as the equal N characters (so the 
ligature for <> has the same width as both characters together).
