How is that related to \zwj and \zwnj?

By the way, the ligature suppression mechanism via \startexceptions is already implemented, correct? If yes, it should now be possible to convert the existing wordlists to the new format, right?

Betreff: [NTG-context] ligature prevention


I probably didn't mention this yet but the way to deal with ligature and
kerning prevention in lmts is:

     {\nokerning whatever}\par
     efficient ff fi\par
     {\noligaturing efficient ff fi}\par
     {\nokerning\noligaturing efficient ff fi}\par
     {e{\noligaturing ffi}cient}\par

because this feature can be used local and because it actually has more
granularity than advertised, I added this in the next version

     {ef{\noleftligaturing f}icient ff fi}\par
     {ef{\norightligaturing f}icient ff fi}\par

(so, specific commands for left/right control). Or course one can wonder
how useful it is, but because tex is all about control ...
