Here is a quick summary of how to use the 3 different types of dashes. Just so we are all clear what they look like:
- Hyphen: short & fat.
- En dash: about twice as long & thinner, named because it is the same width as the letter N.
- Em dash: twice as long again, and named after the letter M due to its width.
