LOL, the plot thickens! it showed me the backslash when i previewed, but now it's gone. ah, gotta love it.


I suspect he is using Classic view where HTML is allowed and of course per the rules it eats unescaped backslashes.

YAML - Yet Another Markup Language Wink

BBCODE is not one of my favorite markup languages but it is designed to be simple and generally thought to be "easier" for the less sophisticated user to use than HTML which is why it's so popular with online forums. Lets see if this works in Modern view....

One backslash -
Two backslash -
Three backslash -

I use the em dash all the time for time frames; i.e.,
1:15 — 2:25

I'm curious to see if the em dash shows up here. I use "shift/option/hyphen" on a Mac to get it.

When I first posted the backslash it showed up but then disappeared. That's it; I'm taking my tractor and going home.


Tall - don't you know you're not supposed to use spaces with em dashes? Cool

Not to mention, an en dash is more appropriate to separate a range of numbers or times as in your example.

For the non-typographically-inclined, an "en dash" is a dash that's the same width as the letter "n" in that font. Same with "em dash," same width as the letter "m" in that font. Back in the typewriter days, you'd use two hyphens in a row to simulate an em dash.

There's a great little book out there by (not the actor) Robin Williams called The Mac is Not a Typewriter that provides a good layman's introduction to these concepts.

It's a shame. My guess is you guys could have got him straightened out if he'd had a little more patience.

It's not a typography issue - apparently it's a markup language issue. The slash (/) character is a reserved character in BBCODE syntax and wont' display when used as a normal standalone character. The display width of an em or en is not the problem. Apparently there is no BBCODE syntax for escaping the slash character. In other words it is always interpreted as part of a formatting sequence and gets "eaten" or ignored by the rendering engine when used in a standalone context. The odd part is on this site it previews fine but won't render in the final document.
