> `weiss' is actually no german word at all.

how's that?
it's both a verb (from wissen) and and adjective/adverb (color)! and it's  
correctly spelled (as far as correctly is a category because only  
officials are compeled to use the afficial orthography).
instead of simply killing that stupid ligature wrongly called "sharp s"  
(and even more wrong sz in german) the new german orthography included a  
really stupid rule when to write ss and when ß .. so nobody is really able  
to figure out what why.
anyway, i wander off ...

with respect to the fully working _swiss_ orthography (and there's no  
known case of swiss dying because being unable to distinguish masse and  
masse) the prediction should be based on simple
sooner or later even official german orthography will make those freely  
interchangeable ...
