There are many occasions where a specific pair of letters do not kern properly, such as ". I would like to be able to select the pair of letters from a particular font that I want kerned throughout an InDesign document, and have them automatically kerned.

Quark has had this ability for as long as InDesign has existed and the kern table function is often cited as a perk over INDD. I wish they would implement this feature.
