Yes there are other glyphs. There is one for "and" (it is something like &) and another for "the" (an y with a e above). There are a few others but I don't remember them off the top of my head.

I think u017f is the long s (I don't have it memorized). Substituting non terminal s with it is fairly close but not quite there. A regex would not be accurate enough, imho.
