If I type an m-dash using the quick shortcut on mac (Alt + dash) it includes a star after the first one — like this — but it only becomes visible after posting. It's only on DF.

EDIT: Oh great when I try to point it out to anyone it doesn't do it. So f'ing typical.

Perhaps it's only in the quick reply form —*testing — which would be odd.

EDIT: Aha, there it is!
EDIT 2: Hehe — lol —* apparently it adds one to the second one after editing :confused:
—*—*— —*—*

I'll try with the n-dash: – –*–*–*–*–
Normal dash: -- - -- - - - - -

This is odd...

Yes and proper capitalization makes a huge difference. Let me explain with an example:

I helped my uncle Jack off a horse.

as opposed to

I helped my uncle jack off a horse.
