Have the Swiss ABOLISHED the Eszett? If so, there'll be THREE different spelling-norms ... Or do you only mean that they've switched to the new German, less Eszett-happy, norm? The Bundesland in question is Schleswig-Holstein. I don't know whether they've caved in yet, but I find it hard to believe they'll go against the rest of Germany for very long on this issue.
