Usage notesEdit

The multiple uses of this character were a compromise that made sense in the early days of fixed-width typewriters and computer displays, but are not in agreement with proper typesetting. Nonetheless, the usage persists since the hyphen-minus is easy to enter on keyboards, well known, and at the same place in all common character sets.
