Perhaps this will make it clearer:



\t bb


\t bb
\tie bb
\c b
\mycedilla b


Please explain why the "\t bb" at the beginning of the file behaves
differently from the "\tie bb" further down.  When I try this, the first
"\t bb" makes a tie over the "bb", but the "\tie bb" produces what
appears to be an italic "t" followed by a "bb".  My understanding of the
\let would imply to me that the \tie should be identical to the original
definition of the \t, but it is not.  Why not?
