The *variant* is applicable to situations where the character is to be
displayed long when Fraktur-like styles are in effect, while it is to
be displayed round when "modern" styles are in effect.
The plain *character* "long s" is intended to be displayed long in all
However, in my next version, I will replace the "s" variants by "long s" variants:
017F FE00 ...LONG S VARIANT-1 STANDARD FORM
· will be displayed long in any script variants
017F FE01 ...LONG S VARIANT-1 FLEXIBLE FORM (naming provisionally)
· will be displayed long in Fraktur, Gaelic, and similar script variants
· will usually be displayed round when used with Roman type
This has the advantage, especially when implicit application of variation sequences
is possible, it can be applied to existing data without change.
