I'm using the
microtype package on
pdfLaTeX and I'm wondering over the possibility to implement pair kerning, as opposed to single-character kerning, within the facilities provided by that package. If this is not contemplated in
microtype, then I'd like to ask about different strategies to do so.
pdfLaTeX compilation is not a strict constraint, although it is more convenient to me because then I could use the entire
microtype facilities (not currently implemented for
My original motivation for this question comes from my using the
garamond package and tuning the kerning for the character "T" in order for pairs such as "To" to display a better adjustment. On this font, the dot on top of the character "i" is singularly high over the stem and collides — or at best "it is almost there" — with the "T" when I use the tuned kerning. Nonetheless, this is just my original motivation, and my question has actually a more general scope.
