New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
In many newer fonts I've been noticing uppercase eszetts (Unicode 1e9e) — even in fonts with smaller character sets. Have these crept into written German over the past few years — replacing the double uppercase S? Are people actually using them, or is it just a typographical oddity?
I'm asking because I just finished designing the two UC weights below with the same sense of unease as when I reluctantly began including interrobangs.
