I've been telling people that the ſs ligature in early English texts
is not ß and shouldn't be recorded that way. I assume that's good
advice in the normal case, that even when you're preserving the
long-s, the ſs ligature should be recorded as ſs? If you're using ﬅ
and ﬆ, would that still be good advice? In practice, a ſs ligature
will exist only in the rarest of fonts, and most modern font styles
arguably shouldn't ligate it.
