This is a tiny little thing.
I’m attempting to insert a single em-dash into a paragraph. (Just before a quote attribution, to be exact). Into the html of my Pinegrow test-page I typed the hexadecimal code mentioned by w3schools.com for the Unicode character “em-dash” which is:
But instead of an em-dash displaying on my page when viewed in Safari, only the above line of type is shown. So it’s not working.
Clearly I’m doing something wrong. I’m not using proper technique for inserting a Unicode character.
However, if I DON’T use fancy coding and instead just type plain old “option-shift-hyphen” [Mac keyboard] into the PG code, it works! I get the proper em-dash displaying when I view the saved html page in Safari.
Can it really be this simple? Aren’t I SUPPOSED to be using proper hexadecimal coding? And if I am, I’m surely doing something incorrect. Leaving out something important.
Here’s screen shot from Safari:
Using simple typing (shift-option-dash) works, but typing the hex code does not.
What am I doing wrong?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
