Bug#299869: ttf-thryomanes: some derived latin characters (fi ligature for ex.) do not match appearance of ascii chars in italic

Package: ttf-thryomanes
Version: 1:1.1-1
Severity: normal

The appearance of ı (dotless i, unicode 0x0131), fi (fi ligature,
0xFB01), and fl (fl ligature, 0xFB02) do not match the appearance of the
regular ascii i, f, and l in the italic font. The regular italic F has
a flourish that protrudes below the baseline but the italic f-ligatures
look like slanted versions of their roman counterparts. It is the same
with the dotless i, which should look exactly like an italic ascii i but
missing the dot; instead it looks like a slanted roman i. I have not
checked for other problems like this so there may be more.

In addition, the ligatures ff, ffl, and ffi are missing.
