Added support for Basic Latin Ligatures (Code points \uFB00 to \uFB06, as per Unicode 6.1 / Latin Ligatures)

The core cufon.js does substitution of letter groups to Unicode ligatures if the font file defines glyphs at those code points.

I left the generator unchanged as it already includes the ligature range if option "all" is checked. Though, it could be improved by adding specific range just for ligatures.

I tested the feature with "PT Sans" (2 glyphs) and "Anivers" (5 glyphs) but I'm not sure these should be included into the project so I left the examples out as Vegur does not have glyphs for ligatures.

Just a note about the commit:

I realized the Font and options are in many-to-many relation (due to the "autoDetect" option), so neither can simply store the other. That made the caching within Font.applyLigatures a little more complicated than I wanted, but I think it's pretty good overall.
