Same issue as with German sharp S: The blackletter »ß« derives from an
ſ-z ligature (thence its German name »Eszet«), whilst the Roman type
»ß« derives from an ſ-s ligature. Still, we encode both variants as
identical letters. I’ve got a print from 1739 with legends in both
German (blackletter) and French (Roman italics), comprising both types
of ligatures in one single document.
