If switching from pdfLaTeX to LuaLaTeX is an option for you, you could employ the selnolig package to disable the Th ligature globally, while leaving all other ligatures in place. (To disable the operation of selnolig at some point in the document, issue the command \selnoligoff.) % !TEX TS-program = lualatex \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} ...

You can use the textcmds package which has the \ldq and \rdq commands for the double quotes, and simpler \qq{...} for double quoting some text: \documentclass{book} \usepackage[OT1,T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[british,french]{babel} \usepackage[kerning=true]{microtype} \usepackage{textcmds} \SetExtraKerning[ unit = space ]{ ...

Here is a SVG path extracted from your picture by inkscape. The code: \documentclass[tikz]{standalone} \usetikzlibrary{svg.path,backgrounds} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \fill[red!30!black] svg[scale=.3pt] { m 322.4,45.2 c -0.8,0.8 -1.6,2.3 -1.6,3.3 0,0.9 -0.5,1.7 -1.1,1.7 -0.6,0 -1.9,1.8 -2.8,4 -0.9,2.2 -2.1,4 -2.6,4 -0.5,0 -1.6,1.6 ...

The choice of inter-letter kerns is not done by TeX but by the font designer, Although in your case you are using Computer Modern so the font designer and the designer of TeX are the same person. You can see which kerns have been added by adding \showoutput to your document. ...\hbox(6.83331+1.94444)x345.0, glue set 259.69434fil ....\hbox(0.0+0.0)x15.0 ...

In most typefaces, letterforms with angled bottoms such as 'V' extend somewhat below the baseline, because the narrow point appears shorter to the eye than it really is. Your manual kerning is very overdone. Remember that kerning is done to make the text 'look right', whatever that may mean, rather than to conform to some mathematically precise spacing ...

You need to include the comma within the scope of the command which switches the font. Kerning has no meaning between fonts and small-caps is essentially a different font as far as TeX is concerned. (I'm not sure quite how this goes for the newer engines, though.) \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Junicode} ...
