Whenever possible in editing the wiki, please add correct typographical symbols.
In can be hard to enter them using your keyboard layout, so keep this page handy to copy and paste.

En dash

Judge Wiki – a perfect place for material.

This is en dash. It is not a hyphen. Hyphen is used to combine a few words: so-so.

Figure dash

12‒19

Figure dash is used in intervals. It is placed higher than en dash, (although it depends on your font) to look nice with digits.

Quotation marks

It is called ‘wiki’.

Quotation marks on the keyboard are not quotation marks.

Ellipsis

True, but…

Ellipsis is not three full stop signs. It is a separate character.
