Template:Ss

Jump to: navigation, search

This template is for displaying typographic variations of the double s ligature. {{ss}} or {{ss|1}} returns the double 'long s' ligature: ſſ, {{ss|2}} returns the double 'descending long s' (or esh) ligature: ʃʃ, {{ss|3}} returns the 'long s'-'s' ligature, (the German esszett), ß, {{ss|4}} returns the 'descending long s'-'s' ligature, ʃß.


Note: with the exception of the German esszett, these ligatures are formed by modifying character spacing, and may not appear correctly for all users (especially the 'descending long s'-'s').
