"Tortuous" not at all: u\kern -0.25em e I was using this method when I actively delt with Føtisk. It looked particularly good in ygoth (given that Føtisk is written in Gothic fonts). In that context, I usually defined a command, so in practice I typed {\ue}, but it did the same thing. (Føtisk also uses æ, œ and ao ligatures; ä, ø, å, and y are considered short ligatures, but obviously aren't drawn using this or a similar method. Typically, the æ, œ and y ligatures have an overdot, but it's not contrastive.) -- Tristan.
