    the alphabetic presentation forms starting at UFB00 contain a number of
    ligatures for latin scripts, among them the more common ones like fi and
    fl, but also rather exotic ones like st.

    However, I find there are a couple of other ligatures in use, namely the
    ct ligature (for instance to be found in Adobe Garamond), the fj
    ligature, and a couple of ligatures common in blackletter typesetting:
    among them ch, ck and tz. Would it be a good idea to propose these
    ligatures for inclusion in Unicode?

    Cheers, Thomas
