I did not think it would work, so I created a test and indeed it does
not work. There's a good reason for this: generally speaking the single
letter  and the two letters oe are not equivalent. Reading the Unicode
documentation for u0153 confirms that  has no decomposition.

Thank you! It was a naove assumption on my part. Please forgive my haste in jumping to a conclusion. I appreciate that you were able to demonstrate with a working illustration.

So, is "" not a ligature or is it just that
Unicode does not provide a decomposition?
