Hmm, adobe fonts has this glyph, so you may use custom afm file that
has necessary 'L' entries.  E.g. for 'f' the ligatures are defined as:

  C 102 ; WX 333 ; N f ; B 20 0 383 683 ; L i fi ; L l fl ;

Try extending the entry for 'o'

  C 111 ; WX 500 ; N o ; B 29 -10 470 460 ;

with, say

  L e oe;

and use custom LCM file that has the 'oe' glyph mapped (hmm, default
LtLatin1.LCM already has them mapped, so no action is requred).  This
will turn o+e into 'oe' digraph "globbaly" for the font.

Alternatively, you can refer to this glyph by name (with @Char) or by
code (in LtLatin1.LCM - OE = "\203", oe = "\204").

PS: I heard an anecdote that when final vote was held on 8859-1 France
was not represented and Belgium representative said they don't need
'oe' and so 8859-1 misses this digraph.
