suppress-ligatures attribute

Used By:All text elements

This value can be set to suppress the use of ligatures in the text - ligatures being the "joining" of two letters into one. In latin scrupts this is typically done with the "fi", "fl", and "ff" letters, which are joined into a single glyph that is more pleasing to the eye. In languages like Arabic, their use is more than just decorative but is essential for the language.

Setting the "suppress-ligatures" attribute to "true" is equivalent to placing a zero-width non-joiner character (‌) between each letter.
