Description of problem:
Glyphs in the Latin Ligature block (U+FB00 .. U+FB06), such as "fi" and "fl",
should have the OpenType 'liga' lookup features defined. That will allow text
renderers to automatically apply the ligature glyph.

Additionally, for completeness, the ligature caret horizontal positions should
be appropriately set for these glyphs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
You may need to solve bug #851790 first.

Also the "fi" (and "ffi" if existing) should exclude dotless-i
scripts/languages, e.g., Turkish.
