I encountered a case when a specific font (Nimbus Sans) seems to visually auto-correct string "Nr." (three characters) into "№" (numero sign). "Nr" by itself still looks like "Nr".
I didn't know it is something a font can do, but it seems like it does. Can someone give me a reference to some info on this, please?
I tried both a web browser (Firefox on Linux) and a text editor (LibreOffice Writer), and it happens in both cases.
The characters do not actually get replaced. If I change the font to, say, Arial, or copy paste it into some plain text field, it turns back to "Nr.". But, as long as the font is set to "Nimbus Sans", it looks like a numero sign was typed.
