Fonts with ligatures

Hello, does anyone happen to know about a font which automatically combine letters into ligatures and automatically turns the letter s into long s? (for example if I type the word sadness, that it will turn into ſadneß or if I type in the word Phoenix, that it will turn into Phœnix? )

Choose an Open Type Font. Then enable “Discretionary Ligatures” (InDesign’s term; it may be something else in another program).

These faces have the long s: Adobe Arno Pro, Adobe Janson Pro, and Adobe Caslon Pro are smooth and modern looking; the I M Fell selection by Igino Marini (five faces) and Roman Antique by Meridiengestaltung are intended to look “olden” and have rough outlines. There are lots more, but that’s all I checked.
