Not by German typesetting rules, that's the point.
Umm, if the point is that the kern of the f will break off the type if used before i, f, or t on a Linotype machine, wouldn't you have to use a ligature regardless of the sensibilities of the German spelling authorities? Or would German printers insert a thin space in such a situation to keep the f out of harm's way? Lars
