Yes. May be add an exemple. Here in image:



Source: given the style
  p    { letter-spacing: 1em; }

<p  style="font-family:'Arial'">
المغرب
</p>

<p>
اﳌغرب
</p>

In the first <p>, letters Lam ل and Meem م are two characters (U+0644 
and U+0645)
In the second <p>, they are ligated in one (U+FCCC).


Note: "font-family:Arial"  is here to avoid some browsers default 
rendering with ligature anyway.
