It has character designations similar to PDF preview files from Literaturmühle publishing. It includes many ligatures that were once common in printing (in German) which are difficult to imitate with computer fonts and have fallen out of use in the digital age. 

This font includes ö,ä,ü,Ö,Ä,Ü and ß along with the following characters:

I'm currently working on a more Englisch-friendly general use version with only the essential ligatures and with a few more of the modern symbols in their proper places.

Note that I followed the precedent of a German publishing company in assigning ligatures to keys and some of these designations are awkward--especially on an English keyboard.  I will probably move a few things around as I get feedback.  For example; majuscule "I" and majuscule "J" are redundant because there is no physical distinction between the two in many Fraktur prints. The apparent variation in the above font is merely the difference in the way the ink splattered in the sample impression.
