Also involved are unligatured twins of most of these
These are all fine entries, but the rare ligatured forms shouldn't be the lemmas. Right now, there are alt-form entries for each of these with the preferred unligatured spellings. What I would like to do is to swap the ligatured with the unligatured entries: move the ligatured entry to a temporary name, move the unligatured entry into its place, and move the ligatured entry to where the unligatured entry was. After that, it should be a simple matter of switching ligatures for diphthongs and vice-versa in the texts of the entries. This should preserve the edit histories and keep the content intact.
I realize there are probably many other cases like this, but this one is small and contained enough to be easily accomplished without much fuss. I almost just went ahead and did it myself, but figured it was better to give it due process.
