    My "proposal" was dealing only with being able to display PRE▀BURG with
    the current technology (your example about applying a title style) I
    think it is feasible while preserving an underlying orthographic
    representation.

    I did not propose any solution to insure roundtrip between (lowercase)
    ▀ <-> SS, a very old problem. I'm not that amibitious ;-) I answered a
    different problem. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
