Description Vladimir Sizikov 2005-06-20 04:49:10 UTC
For example, a valid url http://someplace/file-2005-05-10.html will be replaced
by incorrect link, where single dash '-' is replaced by ndash.

See Parser.php:214:

'/(?<=[\d])-(?=[\d])/' => "&ndash;", # N dash between numbers

Dashes between numbers should not be replaced by ndashes in URLs
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-06-20 04:58:10 UTC
I've removed the automatic dash conversion for now; perhaps in some future parser that actually 
works in a clean fashion this can be done without breaking other markup left and right.
