That's probably fine and cool in most cases, but gets annoying if you'd want to document e.g. Unix commands—like
wget —auth-no-challenge—for copy-pasting them later. This breaks down with the "clever" em-dash conversion.
I found a clumsy workaround: write the two dashes like -<b></b>- or -</b>- in the page source. Is there any better way to avoid Writeboard converting the dashes? Using
<pre> tags for verbatim formatting doesn't seem to help in this case.
