apologies if wrong list, but I am online for a short wile and
wasn't sure where to post.

This MWE



% uniquement avec lualatex donne »

% ici aussi donne »


produces similar result with pdflatex and xelatex
but not with lualatex which applies a ligature.

Surely this has been raised somewhere, but is there
a fix in mark-up which would be engine independent.

This is a real life issue arising in indexing of
Python's >>> prompt with the > being escaped into
TeX macro \textgreater{} by some documentation
production tool, and then LuaLaTeX gives bad result.
