Not everybody is 100% sure with the rules of the last german spelling reform.
Thus, in texts there are often mistakes regarding the use of "ß" (old spelling rules) and "ss" (new spelling rules) .

That's why it is very important to find "ß" only in order to correct them to "ss".
Now I find "ß" and "ss" mixed ... not very useful for longer documents :o(
