It would be great if okular's search could handle common ligatures.
For instance, when a document has been produced by Latex, it is currently impossible to search for terms containing the characters "fi".

small sample pdf containing a ligature.

okular's search for "afiliation" will fail, since "fi" has been contracted (a ligature).
