Thu Oct 30 21:03:08 2008, original submission:

There appears to be some confusion over endashes and emdashes. An endash is used for (number) ranges, while an emdash is normally used in a sentence.

To reproduce:
10--20 should be: 10<literal style="html">&ndash;</literal><literal style="latex">--</literal>20

In "html" style, this renders to:
<!-- Page published by Emacs Muse begins here -->
<p>10&mdash;20 should be: 10&ndash;20</p>
<p>OK&mdash;this is indeed an emdash...</p>
<!-- Page published by Emacs Muse ends here -->

Is there some other way to get an endash except for the verbose "<literal>" form above?

This is with emacs-muse from git as of 2008-10-13 (5cc807).
