Em and en dashes
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.
