Not at all. The German sharp S is a ligature of long S (the one that looks vaguely like f in roman type) and a modified Z, as it's alternative name "ess-zed" indicates. The resemblance to \beta is sheer coincidence. -- Schlingt dreifach einen Kreis vom dies! || John Cowan <jcowan@...> Schliesst euer Aug vor heiliger Schau, || Denn er genoss vom Honig-Tau, || Und trank die Milch vom Paradies. -- Coleridge (tr.
