When working on justification, it will be important to consider the 
complex text layout languages. Some justification implementations (such 
as Firefox) break the clusters when justifying (placing glue or 
something between the characters, I guess), not allowing the text layout 
engines to do their work properly and disabling the ligatures. The 
result is unreadable text.
