[XeTeX] OpenType ligatures

I am working on an OpenType font with many ligatures
(even contextual ligatures). I am using george
excellent FontForge fort editor and the generated font
work just fine with gedit, but XeTeX seems to
only the simple ligatures, not the contextual.
Specifically, the font is a Greek language font and I
have a double lambda ligature, which XeTeX has no
problem with. But when I am using a contextual
ligature that
maps a kappa iota that is preceded by a space and
followed by a space to uni03D7, then ligature
is not working. Is it possible that somehow XeTeX
cannot handle such ligatures? I am using the following
in LaTeX file to enable the font


Any help would be really appreciated it.

Kind regards,
