We could change oe to oe-ligature where appropriate in Louis Segond.
That would be simple enough since editions exist online that use
However, since we won't be doing language-specific search tweaks and
since oe-ligature basicallly can't be typed on French keyboards, the
change would make these words unsearchable. While the ligature might be
helpful to non-native speakers needing cues to pronunciation, I don't
think any native French speakers would have any issues with reading the
text exactly as it is now.
Do you still think the change would be beneficial?
Do any users who use French as their primary language consider the
change an improvement?
