    [LanX]: is there a unicode convention that ß is ss ?
    [Tanktalus]: LanX: yes :) I haven't tried java, but I have this match working in its bastard cousin, C# :) I just thought perl's unicode support would get me there :)
    [LanX]: I have my doubts, IMHO its a workaround if the glyph is missing
    [LanX]: (they are pronounced differently)
    [choroba]: perl -Mutf8 -Mfeature=fc -wE 'say fc "straße" eq fc "strasse"'
    [choroba]: returns 1 for me
    [choroba]: are they?
    [LanX]: strict rules : the a is long in "straße" and short in "strasse"
    [choroba]: So the "a" is different, not the "s" ;-)
    [LanX]: people knowing that it's a workaround will pronounce it right
