comment Editing ligature table
@egreg thanks for the feedback. I just want to know how to do something new with TeX, so that's why I put my original question as an inquiry about the TeXBook. I already know how to pre-process the input file and/or write simple macros.

@erreka yes that's what I want to do. I have a lengthy text of some environmental regulations in plain ascii, and would like to make an easier-to-read handbook for those who have to refer to them frequently.

@egreg ...OK so you meant that it was unfortunate that Knuth was writing prior to Unicode.

comment Editing ligature table
@egreg OK, understood. In my application I have a long plain text file that I'd like to typeset for easier reading, with some sequences (such as CO2) that should be rendered with subscripts (CO$_2$). My idea was to write handle the subscripts through a ligature to minimize the amount of pre-processing that would need to be done on the text file.

@egreg your comment is intriguing. I think you're saying that prior to Unicode, it was not possible to switch around the positions of glyphs on a font table; but that it became possible with Unicode, which is unfortunate.
