This can be done in three ways:
1 Store ligating preference in the document
2 Store ligating preferences in the AbiWord preferences
(must only affect *new* documents; existing documents
should use the preference stored in the document)
3 On a case by case basis. E.g. the user right-clicks on
a ligature and choses 'don't ligate', or selects a
non-ligated character sequence (where ligating has been
disabled and chooses 'ligate'). This can be done with
zero-width joiners and non-joiners. See section 13.2

Yes, a ligature glyph should of course *only* be displayed if it
