[bksvol-discuss] doublr-hyphensand em dashes.

Now I'm a little confused. The double-hyphens automatically turn into em dashes 
in Word. If I'm proofing a scan, like the one I'm doing now, that has already 
has em dashes, am I  supposed to change them to double hyphens? Or does the 
fact that I'm seeing em dashes mean that the scanner used the double-hyphens 
when she pre-proofed.
