DF

  The Dscript DF combination is a tricky one, because if the slated vertical stroke of the F comes out of the extreme right of the D's horizontal bar then it just looks like a normal F, it must come out of right center portion of the D's horizontal bar. To help compensate for this there is a special alternate form where the F is connected above a miniature D, even thought the D is technically "below" the F, it should still be read as DF not FD.
