Continuing Typesetting in Dutch: Dijkstra vs. Dĳkstra, how do you typeset the Dutch word for release:
- vrijgeven (with two separate glyphs
- vrĳgeven (with a ligature
Do i and j in this word belong to two syllables or to one?
(I'm not asking about the capitalized versions VRIJGEVEN vs. VRĲGEVEN. I'm also not asking about what various typesetting programs currently do in Dutch: their authors are sometimes terribly off, and the programs sometimes do exhibit unintended behavior. I'm asking what should be the case in Dutch for the lower-case word.)
