I don't care for normative debates on orthography. I simply stated that
`weiss' is no german word as my assumed explanation of why it is not

My problem is not that my `weiß' isn't spelled correctly. The problem
is, with prediction not recognizing `weiss', this input method is barely
usable right now.
