Em and en dashes (1 post)

    If I type two hyphens in a post, because I want a long dash, and I don't put spaces--like this--I get an en-dash. If I surround my pair of hyphens with spaces -- as I just have and as you normally would with an en-dash, otherwise it looks too much like a hypen -- I get an em-dash instead.

    It's my understanding that if I want an em-dash, I type three hyphens---which works---in the blog post editor at least---I'm not sure what's going to happen here in the forum post editor and I can't find a preview button.
