Wiki Syntax for EN and EM Dashes


This wiki syntax plugin transforms double minus signs (--) into an en dash () and triple minus signs (---) into an em dash (), like for example in LaTeX.

As an example:

  • All occurrences of -- become –.
  • All occurrences of --- become —.
  • Multiple --------- stay as they are.
