Web pages that include digits in the Palatino font display with unusual
ligatures. I will include a screenshot.

It turns out that the file /usr/share/texmf/fonts/type1/public/figbas/plrj.pfb
which is a specialised font for "figured-bass notation in baroque music" is
being used as Palatino (it should modiy Palatino to give a dedicated, obscure
font that no-one except early music freaks will ever use).

For more details see
(you will need to click on "more" to see all the information).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure that Latex is installed
2. view a web page like
that includes Palatino
3. you should see something like the enclosed screenshot fragment.
Actual Results:
The numbers 2,4,5,6 and 9 have additional ligatures.

Expected Results:
Th eligatures should not be present.

As far as I know my setup is standard, yet I can find no evidence that anyone
else has seen this bug. Please see the Quora link for more details.
