German Language/Wittgenstein quote


"Das es mir - oder Allen - so scheint, daraus folgt nicht, daß er so ist."

  , is from the Wittgenstein Bastard website.

The Google translator cannot recognize "daß".
Could you give me the English spelling that will
index me to the dictionary definition.
Or, if that is not possible, could you tell
me, in English, what that "daß " means?


"Das es mir - oder Allen - so scheint, daraus folgt nicht, dass es so ist."

It is the sign for a double ss :

Alt 0223        Eszett

Because it seems to me - or to everybody - it does not follow that it is so.
