[bksvol-discuss] Re: dashes

I try to leave them as they are. Don't worry about that. I don't think it's a big deal either way. If that's what you have, don't bother changing them.

Oh no! So now I have to change all those retarded m dashes in that great big
seven hundred page book! Is that correct?

Oh--then we should use two dashes rather than the em dash, I guess.
Thanks for telling me. I'll change my habits right now, starting with
the book I'm validating now.

No, the em dash doesn't translate properly into Braille, at least not
the way Bookshare does it. The convention for Braille is to use two
hyphens for the em dash, but for some reason Bookshare's Braille
translator just puts in one hyphen.

  I just wanted to make sure that the em dash correctly translates
into Braille. I know not all characters do. And I know that there was
recent discussion about it but I have to confess I really didn't pay
enough attention to it.

  I figured I could look it up in the manual. Some books use tons of
em dashes.
