Hi, I would like to suggets the following that will be used
on the Hebrew Wikipedia and other Hebrew Wikimedia projects:
Wiki will convert, as it converts a * into a list and ~~~
into a signature, two minus hyphens (U+2010 : --) to an
U+05BE sign (Hebrew hyphen : ־). And convert three minus
hyphens (U+2010 : ---) into an en hyphen (U+2013 : –)
This is because that we do not have a Hebrew hyphen (U+05BE)
and a Hebrew dash (U+2013) on the keyboard so we have been
using the minus hyphens instead - and incorrectly. As an
encyclopedia we cannot go on like this, and thus I have
suggested the aforementioned enhancement. I believe it to be
improtant as it will enable the Hebrew community to use the
correct syntex as regulated by the Official Academy of the
Hebrew Language of Israel.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 1485 ***
Pehaps this but is related to other bugs, but I think it should stand on it's own
since the requests are different. I requested that we use the -- to create a
Hebrew hyphen, not an em/en dash. This is importatnt since the Hebrew hyphen is in
much more use. Besides, my request should reflect only some of the Wikis and not
all, so perhaps it needs a different approach to fixing it.
oh, I saw your remark at bug # 1485. n/m.
