Kerning pairs in Type1 fonts are described in AFM files and probably
the AFM stuff is not supported by Michel's program.  But it doesn't
matter at all.  dvi2svg derives kerning information from the DVI file.

I also think that ligatures are not a problem.  A ligature is simply a
glyph.  The problem is to find out when to replace "ff" by an
"ff-ligature".  But a DVI file already contains this information.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
