Thanks for the suggestions João. I found some more characters and added an additional 160 characters to the function.

Hi - the German character "ß" stands for "ss" (not "B").
So it should say [ "ß" ; "ss" ] ;

Awesome job though - very useful - thank you!

This is great, but turning the German letter Esszet or double-S "ß" into a capital "B" is a mistake; the equivalent of ß is "ss", it has nothing to do, despite its appearance, with the letter B.

Cheers,
RM

Thanks for the feedback R. Miller and Doug Staubach.

I've corrected "ß" so that it replaces with "ss".

Regards,
Sean
