    Thanks for the warning about the broken PDF, for unknown reasons the
    text pages and the 1E??-table work with AcroReader 3. The evidence
    on these pages is what's today an ordinary in a larger font, while
    the lower case in these examples is the variant I've learned in
    school ("Gr Gott, Kasperl") some decades ago (long-s z ligature).

    It's not a new character. It shows that an ordinary is sometimes
    used together with capital letters instead of SS (or even SZ), and
    the result is perfectly readable. It's u+00DF, you have it already.

    Frank
