Hi all,

Yesterday I successfully created an ePub containing a historical novel set in a blackletter font. Font embedding and font display works fine so far, but what isn't working is the "Long-S" (ſ Unicode U+017F)uſed in blackletter and historical texts frequently. Somehow it seems to be mapped to an "end-s" (normal s).

On Mac OS Mountain Lion, showing the "index.html" of the ePub in Safari works fine, however, it even seems to get the ligatures right most of the time.

Any ideas on how to resolve this and get iBooks show the "ſ" correctly?
