Hairspaces Around Dashes

Description

Dashes are punctuation marks that are commonly used in written text. A long dash (β€”) is known as an em dash, whereas a short dash (–) is known as an en dash.

This plugin converts any whitespace around dashes into smaller hairspaces, to produce a more elegant typographic effect.

Both em and en dashes are recognized.

Look at the following sentence, which uses dashes:

I love this plugin β€” and everything about it β€” because it works so well.

When this plugin is activated, the sentence would appear like this (with smaller spaces around the dashes):

I love this pluginβ€Šβ€”β€Šand everything about itβ€Šβ€”β€Šbecause it works so well.
