Barey counts as typgraphy but...

    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...

    Maybe Greg's just making sure you know that you're a star for using proper dashes ;)

    Oh yeah definitely. And now every time I see an incorrect dash I cringe inside :rolleyes:

    Nazis should be capitalised, just so you know. :p

    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.
