On these pages I found Tempora LGC Unicode is already included these glyphs, encoded in PUA.

Hi Steve,

Have you ever thought about providing more ligatures with long S? Although ſt have implemented historical ligature “hlig”, but there are more ligatures with long S in the past as ſi, ſl, ſſ etc.

Regards
