>Can you post evidence of their occurrence.
Sadly, Asmus, no. I said "I have seen", not "I have in my possession". It
was a periodical like Stern or Spiegel, maybe a bit "lower" on the popular
press side of things. The CAPITAL SHARP S had a flat top and a little
toothlike extension to the left.
OK, so this isn't very good and it looks like Tibetan. But what I
understood was that a typographer had designed the character to account for
the problem of automatic capitalization, where "läßt" becomes "LÄßT".
Can anyone explain how you can take a string and automatically capitalize
it from U+00DF to U+0053 U+0053 and then go back without it going back to
Would evidence of CAPITAL SHARP Ss lead anyone to want to encode it as an
actual character which could be realized as <SS> or <CAPß>?
