Smart Dashes

Tinderbox uses underlying Apple frameworks to automatically substitute a pair of successive dashes/hyphens -- with a long em-dash —. Note: for historical and practical reasons this feature is not used in aTbRef.

From v6.3.0, Smart Dashes are also controlled via $SmartQuotes. This makes it easier for those with more precise quote/dash control to disable these smart features which are on by default
