You also need em-dash+hyphenchar and en-dash+hyphenchar ligatures. Of
course, these are complicated if one is doing hanging punctuation
since the em-dash and en-dash plus hyphenchar ligatures need to be
ligatured to hanging em and en dash characters which of course the
Cork designers in their computer-science-inspired myopia left no space
