[bksvol-discuss] Re: recurring scanning flaw

MDash or a "Long dash" is a normal punctuation mark often used to designate
subordinate clauses.  If you find those, please do not remove them.  Unless
you have the print book for reference and you know, for certain, that the
mark does not belong in the spot where it appears, you should try to keep it
as much as possible.

Jill,
Do you mean em-dash? If so, you shouldn't replace them with commas. That's a
single symbol that means two dashes together--they're used to separate
clauses.
