notes
  • The letter (upper-case variant of ß) was added to Unicode in 2008 and may not appear correctly on older operating systems. (Non-German-speakers: Please do not refer to ß as “German b” – it is pronounced like s, so “German s” is more correct. The official names are eszett or scharfes S [sharp s].)
