comment Editing ligature table
@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.

comment Editing ligature table
@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.
