You're absolutely right: it's a rendering issue not a mere character
replacement. But there's still one piece of meta-information that should
be kept: the user's preference whether or not a particular group of
letters should be rendered as ligature or not.

BTW, what happens when one exports the document to PDF? Is the text
going to containt "ffl" or 0xFB02 (or whatever) code?
