[sword-devel] French ligatures in Louis SÉGOND’s text

Has anyone done a comparative study in the use or non-use of such ligatures
in earlier French Bibles: [e.g.] 
Ostervald, Martin, Crampon, Version Synodale as well as the Louis SÉGOND ?

Also, whether there are inconsistencies even within any of these Bibles as
to whether a given word is used with or without the ligature?

And, for these historic texts, shouldn't our objective be to represent
electronically as accurately as possible what the original printed works
