    This sort of SS ligation is quote easy to do in most sans serif designs, but considerably
    more difficult to make convincing in a serif book face. Whatever the model form for the
    uppercase eszett becomes, it needs to be something that is as easily adaptable to
    different styles of typeface design as any other uppercase letter.
