Hey there!

First of all, thanks for this great site! It really made an enthusiastic fast-typer :)

But there is one little thing that disturbs me a bit: Maybe you know, that there is only one letter in German, that does not exist in swissgerman (Switzerland, speaking the same language ;)): It's the letter "", that is not existent on Swiss keyboards (=ss)! And thus, it's pretty annoying, if a word with this letter appears on the screen, 'cause you type it wrong, no matter how fast you type... And it disturbs your rhythm...

I'm not sure, whether there is an intelligent solution to this problem, 'cause I don't think the German people 'round here want the "" to be completely replaced with "ss" from the data, 'cause this wouldn't be correct German-German! But would it be possible, to accept "ss" instead of a "" for the input? Dunno whether that's complicated somehow, but I would be extremely pleased :)

It's just a small thing, so if it's too complicated, just leave it... But it would be great to implement :)

I think there is no problem, if the administrator takes the time to do this work... I'm austrian (we write same as the germans!) and i would prefere to write ss than , because its the ONLY KEY, that isn't in the quart of the keys.. so, i think there would be no problem for germans to wrote ss instead of !

I am german but I am not using the . Instead I also use "ss" which is much faster. Maybe the admins can just replace the with ss and release it as "swiss german" or something like that.
