f in Times New Roman is dranw in a different way than f in Times Roman
from Adobe or in other high quality fonts. It is modified in order not
to look so bad if the fi ligature is not used (because MS Word cannot
use it automatically). The shapes of the ligatures, if they do exist,
will dramatically differ from those present in Computer Modern.
