Does Constant Contact support the n-dash (&ndash and m-dash (&mdash in html? It doesn't look like it does, but I'm wondering if I'm missing something.
What about dir="ltr"?
My experience too is that an html m-dash and n-dash revert to a hyphen. Even when I enter the html code for them (— and –) in the html editor, that code is replaced by a hyphen (-). My question about html code dir-"ltr" for changing the direction of text from right-to-left to left-to-right was never answered. Trial and error has shown me it is not supported. Constant Contact, however, is pretty good at dealing with Hebrew text so I have not had to resort to this code as I have had to do in writing web pages.
it's a problem because they are used differently. A hyphen is smaller & used only for compound words (such as twenty-year-old), or for separating prefixes (such as cross-cultural) but a dash (m-dash) is used to separate words, similar to a comma, it sets off words in the middle of a sentence. (such as "The major features of her poetry---strong images and complex tone---were often praised by critics") But in Constant Contact, if you cut/paste a dash, or even if you use html code for an m-dash or n-dash, they all revert to a hyphen.
