Maybe you should consider using this as standard ligature

sub iacute j acutecomb -> iacute_j;

The text below would be shown as the correct ligature:

íj́

Then move this ligature

sub f i j -> f_i_j;

to either a specific Dutch language feature, or move it to the Discretionary Ligatures.

However, that is much harder to type than íj.

Serif apps do not support locl features, so I cannot use that method.

True.

Besides it is rarely used, so it is more hypothetical.

Next time I notice it, I'll let you know.

I have now moved fij -> fij to discretionary ligatures. ​

If only liga is enabled, fij will use the fi ligature; if dlig is also enabled it will not.

Version 2.22 is now available for download.

Version 2.30 changed Contextual Ligatures for Velthuis encoding to a Stylistic Set, and changed a Stylistic Set to Character Variants. A Slashed Zero, two more glyphs for Irony Punctuation, super/subscripts for simple equations in fractions, e.g. (4+5)/9÷3), and Pagoda and Stupa Transport and Map Symbols were added. Kerning was made slightly less tight, and more kerning pairs were added.
