Jellby hat geſchrieben:I've activated the "ss11" feature, but that doesn't give me the long-s in "försvinner" or the ß ligature in "dess". I'm not sure these are completely correct in fraktur Swedish, but that's the sample I have, and at least "förſvinner" appears in other texts I find online too). Is it possible to get this with the current font version?
The reaſon for “försvinner” is plainly that the current heuriſtics is deſigned for German where there is no non-compound word ſtarting with sv
. Thus this combination would only appear in compounds with the s
being the laſt letter of the firſt part, which automatically renders it a round s according to the German rules for s typeſetting. To obtain “försvinner” with the current verſion, you have to enter försvinner
(or copy this) with a zero-width non joiner between r
ſhould be rendered “deſs”. ſs is not replaced with ß becauſe the two were and are orthografically different in German, though you hardly found them both in the ſame text hiſtorically. So ß is not a plain ſs ligature. Moreover, as the ß is eaſily available on all keyboard layouts for the German language (in contraſt to the ſ) and moſt uſers are aware when to uſe it in the deſired orthography, there is no real reaſon to provide an automatism for this. To obtain “deß”, you have to uſe the ß character.

In theory, yes, but that’s a lot of work. It would require ſome inſights into the Swediſh long s rules or a corpus containing correct long s ſpelling. Even then, it may not work for words like “förſvinner” as Swediſh has compoſites like the ones I mentioned for German. If you can provide me with a table like the one on page 31 here
, I will happily implement it, however.
