WordPress is automatically replacing “–” with an eNdash. This makes things look like they’re hyphenated. The proper replacement would be an eMdash–but I don’t even want that. I want 2 dashes.
The use of a double dash (“–“) rather than an emdash is a valid and traditionally-accepted practice. How do I remove this “fix” from WP? I’ve dug through both formatting.php and functions-formatting.php, but can’t find where to remove this. The only place that looks like it would fit the bill is an array dealing with the Cockney translations, and removing the emdash/endash items results in a white page.
