I'm working on a typeface at the moment that uses plenty of ligatures (in the style of Ed Interlock) and I'm wondering if there's any way to make certain ligatures be dominant over others? For example, for SHI I have an SH ligature and a HI ligature, and because SH comes first as you're typing, it turns into the ligature and the I is left alone. Without having to make an SHI ligature, can I make the HI ligature dominant over SH in the case of SHI?
And pardon me if that makes no sense at all. I'm just curious if I can make certain ligatures bow down to more dominant ones.. If there's any code or such.
Also, while I'm here and asking, can you include spacebar in ligature replacements? Say, for example, you have an S and when it's at the end of a word (marked by a spacebar following the S) you want it to do a swashy thing, is that possibe? like a "sub S [SPACE] by SSpace.li" thing..?
