I'm a graphic designer, and the differences between an em-dash, 
n-dash and hyphen matter to me. I customarily use &#8211; for 
en-dashes and &#8212; for em-dashes. When I clean up my pages using 
Mac Tidy, though, it converts these both to the same hyphen. Same 
thing if I use &ndash;  &mdash; I use a configuration file, but 
haven't been able to find what variable controls the way Tidy deals 
with these entities. What is the solution?

Thanks!
