>Summary: \ptexnoligatures should leave kerning intact

Initial Comment:
% The new \ptexnoligatures primitive will break the
% horizontal positioning of \mathaccents if the base
% character is slanted.
% There is no problem with \accent, nor with \mathaccent
% on upright characters:

$\dot{A} \dot{\rm{A}} \dot{\Delta} \dot{\mit\Delta}$
{\tenit \accent'137 A}

\ptexnoligatures\tenit % OK
\ptexnoligatures\textfont0 % = cmr10, \rm  % OK
\ptexnoligatures\textfont1 % = cmmi10, \mit % breaks shift

$\dot{A} \dot{\rm{A}} \dot{\Delta} \dot{\mit\Delta}$
{\tenit \accent'137 A}

\bye,
Robert

This is because it (\ptexnoligatures) also disables the
kerning information for the font. You'll have to accept that
as a "known limitation" for now.
