Just a quick little note about The Trouble With EM ’n EN. This is an awesome article on the lost art of typesetting and includes information on em dashes, en dashes, and all sorts of other “special” characters not included in 7-bit ASCII. Required reading for anybody putting content on the web!
I just remembered that “The Trouble with EM ‘n EN” is what got me started on blogging! I read the article, then checked out the author’s website/blog. Some of the things I read there got me riled up enough that I felt the overwhelming urge to post my $0.02 worth in response. So many thanks to Peter K. Sheerin for a great article as well as getting me into the blogosphere! 😉
