..or is it a letter?:
"..causing the needle to ßlam".
Looks like a B, but it must be an S.?
Read this page of the wiki:
Talking about the ebook? There are numerous instances in which, for whatever reason, 's' is replaced with β, I'd say link it and report it in the Feedback section...
In German, ß is used to indicate a double s. In the conjucation of the verb essen, you get:
This is another case of the printer substituting a "near enough" letter.
The real German "double S" looks like two "esses" run together.
This is not a standard symbol,but "β" is,& it looks "near enough"!
A similar situation is where "uF" is used instead of "μF",but why "β" is in the standard set & "μ" isn't is beyond me!
Character 181 is µ. Character 223 might be ß.
I think it may be an error in the markup language used for the book, SubML...it may be worth it to look into, considering the number of times this error seems to occur...
