[R-pkg-devel] Producing ß in help files.

In a help file that I am writing I wish to cite an item by a bloke whose 
surname is Weiß.

In LaTeX I would use the macro \ss, but Rd files don't accept that.

Is there any way that I can create the ß symbol in a help file?  I've 
done a bit of web-searching and found nothing helpful.

Of course I could just write "Weiss", but that's *so* non-U! :-)

Thanks for any ideas.
