How to note a "dash" sign in Markdown?


I’m not sure this is possible. Please let me know.

Example of use (in a dialog):

  • Where are you going John?
  • I’m going to Lancaster.

With the actual syntax the two dashes become bullet points, right.


Double-hyphens create en-dashes, and triple-hyphens create em-dashes, which is probably what you want for grammatical usage like this. You wouldn’t typically want to use a hyphen for denoting speech like this, typographically speaking any way.

Yes that’s exactly what I was looking for :smiley:
Thank you very much AmberV.
