New submission from Max Parry <max at maxparry.com>:
The German alphabet has four extra characters (ä, ö, ü and ß) when compared to the UK/USA alphabet. Until 2017 the character ß was normally only lower case. Upper case ß was represented by SS. In 2017 upper case ß was introduced, although SS is still often/usually used instead. It is important to note that, as far as I can see, upper case ß and lower case ß are identical.
The upper() method converts upper or lower case ß to SS. N.B. ä, ö and ü are handled correctly. Lower() seems to work correctly.
Please note that German is my second language and everything I say about the language, its history and its use might not be reliable. Happy to be corrected.
