Do any typographers read this weblog? If so, I have a request: I would like an eA ligature for a paper I am writing in LaTeX. Something like the following but in the standard Computer Modern typeface. An italicized version would also be nice.
I need it for a word with InnerCaps that appears throughout the paper. As it is, the separate letters appear too far apart, and the tails do not line up nicely when I play with the kerning. LaTeX already has æ and Æ; why not the other six combinations? Or every two-letter combination? There are only (26 × 2)2 = 2,704 of them.
