Font-variant-ligatures is a CSS property that defines how some letters appear next to each other in certain fonts. (Read more) To turn these off or define a different property, there’s a couple ways:

For the entire scene:

.HYPE_scene { font-variant-ligatures: none; }

Or for just a specific class:

.HYPE_scene .classname { font-variant-ligatures: none; }

Here are all the optional properties: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/font-variant-ligatures#Syntax

```
