Been looking at an image of the Uzziah Funerary Inscription* and noticed
that there are some consonant pairs that look like they are intentionally
connected together.

On line one there is a Taw Yod where the left foot of the Taw joins the Yod
making a continuous line. On line four there is a Pe Taw where the bottom
line of the Pe extends to the left forming a continuous line with the Taw.

Nothing earth shaking about this observation, I suppose it is common.
