Yahoo(ps)!

How to Make Your Editor Mad in Eight Words or Less, from Yahoo.com this past Friday: "Hillary delivered mdash how will Bill Clinton fare?"

I wonder how one delivers an mdash (or, more accurately, an em dash)? If it takes more than 30 minutes, is it free?

This is almost certainly the fault of the person converting the copy to HTML — the command for an em dash is "mdash", surrounded by an ampersand and a semicolon. :)
