Clashing Accented Character Pairs Kerning

Forums: 

I was curious if there is a definitive list of accented character pairs that have a tendency to 'clash' and that are most likely to occur in extended languages.

I generally know what they are and have made pairs with exceptions in the past to handle the ones that I believe would be common.

I was thinking that if there was a list I could prevent having to kern pairings that would potentially never occur.

Kerning Pairs gf and gy in Italic Fonts

Forums: 

Hello everybody,

why are letter pairs like ›gy‹ and more often ›gf‹ in so many otherwise nice italic fonts so badly kerned? For example:

http://Williams Caslon Text Italic OT

One of the rare exceptions:

http://Iowan Old Style BT Pro Italic

I’ve chosen the two examples, just because I like both typefaces very much.

Some explanations for that fact?

Thank you and kind regards

Mario
