SymbolEdit

-

  1. The hyphen-minus, a catch-all symbol for certain dash and dash-like characters.
    1. (hyphen)
    2. (minus sign)
    3. (figure dash)
    4. (en dash)
    5. (em dash)

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.
