                    uses a non-standard spelling, we have encoded both her spelling and the standard
                    Oxford English Dictionary spelling to facilitate searching. The long s is not

Indeed – no such idea even crossed my mind! The “difference” was only in opinion – in re illustration – which I think very good.
