HI ...

I use "—" and "–" quite a bit for longer "dashes" or hyphens in
text.

in firefox (3.53) and opera (9.10), they seem to show up as little
question-marks in diamonds; indicating a character that does not translate
into html ...?

can anyone comment?

the doctype is transitional, the charset=iso-8859-1

thanks
