Fighting With M- And N-Dashes

WordPress, god love ’em, include a bunch of code in their installs to help you not be a bad person who uses hyphens as dashes. And that’s great – if you’re not using a web font that doesn’t include m- and n-dashes (like, say, the one I’m using here). If you do find yourself with mysterious white spaces where those dashes should be, you can either change fonts or you can hack the code to get rid of the substitution. Guess which one I did?
