Bug Description

The Purisa font in ttf-thai-tlwg has a bad entry in the liga table, substituting the sequence"TM" [Latin capital letter T, Latin capital letter M] with U+F000, which is a glyph depicting a girl's head.

Consequently wherever "TM" appears in text in these fonts, those letters are replaced with the girl's head glyph which is not a typographic representation of those letters. The entry should be removed from the table.

This is present in Purisa.ttf, Purisa-Oblique.ttf, Purisa-Bold.ttf and Purisa-BoldOblique.ttf.

Ubuntu 10.10
ttf-thai-tlwg 1:0.4.14-1
