Quoting Ken Cole:
Quote:
"ß" is a relatively rare case in that there is no capital version.  With instances such as this (if others are found), when there is no upper case equivalent to "ß", and if "ß" is routinely capped as "SS" in the native language, the "ß" character may be used.


That's wrong

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9F
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_%C3%9F

When using all-caps, the current spelling rules require the replacement of ß with SS

If no ß is available, ss is used instead. This applies especially to all caps or small caps texts because ß does not have a generally accepted majuscule form.
Die heutigen Rechtschreibregeln schreiben vor, im Versalsatz das „ß“ durch „SS“ zu ersetzen („Weiß“ wird zu „WEISS“).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9F

And when it's SS it stays SS !
Or go ahead and ignore the german orthography

I am trying to figure out what the point of this post was.  Ken said, "if "ß" is routinely capped as "SS" in the native language, the "ß" character may be used."

Since you seem to be saying that isn't the case in German, his statement doesn't apply...or am I missing something here?

"the word "Grosse" doesn't exist in german and makes no sense -> Suchergebnis: 0 Treffer in Duden - Deutsches Universalwörterbuch !" Such bullsh*t (it means the same as Große)

Of course it exists, and every german knows it, thats why its called "GroSSe Film - Klassiker"

"Ken said, "if "ß" is routinely capped as "SS" in the native language, the "ß" character may be used.""

But the SS on the Cover

I can't see the contribution as I don't own that title but, if what you say is true, the contributor has made a mistake and has misinterpreted Ken's statement.

The correct spelling in mixed case is "große".
Same as weiße. (Where we got (for this forum) a very clear decision)

I think he used the word may, because there are also words, e.g. Masse and Maße, which have a different meaning, but in all-caps both would be MASSE.
So here I may use ß to replace SS in mixed case if it is needed for the correct spelling. (And of course because it would be wrong to say replace SS always with ß)

Btw, my personnel opinion how it should be done for DVDP purpose is different because of different reasons, but this is a different story.

Edit: Nimrod as you correctly stated in your vote on this contribution ß will be replaced by SS in all-caps, so the way backwards to mixed case it will be SS -> ß. So I don't understand how this will be the reason for the no vote.  Perhaps I have an understanding problem here.

What? No

"Die heutigen Rechtschreibregeln schreiben vor, im Versalsatz das „ß“ durch „SS“ zu ersetzen („Weiß“ wird zu „WEISS“)."

Und SS bleibt demzufolge auch SS, da gibts keinen grund ß zu nehmen, es steht ja nicht umsonst so auf dem Cover

"Ken said, "if "ß" is routinely capped as "SS" in the native language, the "ß" character may be used.""

Und Grosse ist ein routinemäßiges wort!

Eine Auswahl von Nimrods Lieblingzitaten (http://www.myspace.com/nimrahwt):

Toleranz ist das unbehagliche Gefühl, der Andere könnte am Ende vielleicht doch recht haben. Robert Forst

Provoziere und du wirst ernst genommen

Arroganz ist die Kunst, auf seine eigene Dummheit stolz zu sein.

Dummheit & Ignoranz drückt sich immer in den Versuchen aus, unangenehm erscheinende Angelegenheiten verbieten zu wollen

Nimrod seems to be saying that the correct spelling, in mixed case, is 'grosse' so color me confused.

Achso, deswegen hast du mich wohl auf deine Blockierliste gesetzt  (Das ist wahre Ignoranz)
Du scheinst mir bei den Punkten auch nicht besser zu sein.

"Provoziere und du wirst ernst genommen"
Deine letzten Posts hier ist auch ziemliche Provozion 

you forgot:
"Das du Ignoranz als bestes Mittel siehst ist lächerlich und zeigt nur das du dir der Problematik nicht bewusst bist, kaum Hintergrundwissen hast, dir aber einbildest eine Meinung zu haben zu können."

@MadMartian: you can see it on the cover, and as I said its a mixed case ^^
