No, modern PDFs (say one produced by InDesign) are able to put in
ligatures and at the same time allow cutting and pasting to work
(ligature "ff" will show-up as two "f"s). I think this is done by
associating certain text with a graphical-glyph. This is possible but I
don't know if PDFlib can do it.
