Spell checker is not handling em dash correctly

Post by S_Belle »

The spell checker seems to be marking any words combined with an "—" em dash as miss spelled.

However outside of newspapers it is quite rare to use spaces with the em dash.

Should't there be a space at both sides of the dash symbol?

Generally no. Generally the only time you see space around the em dash is in newspapers.
