Aha! This is in fact the version that I have, and in the readme file is
expressed as differing from the ITC version. It was done in 1995, and does
in fact contain all of these wonderful ligatures which I am trying to take
advantage of. :) 

You can see the test version at,
(the ct, st, and ft [although not the tt for some reason] are shown on page
10, in the 8r encoding)

Once I get the "searching" problem solved, my next address will be how to
create definitions in an etx/mtx file to have latex substitute these
ligatures that are not found in any encoding that I have seen.
