Bug Description

The em dash is great: http://www.thepunctuationguide.com/em-dash.html

The iPhone and Android keyboards offer it: http://www.punctuationmatters.com/n-dash-and-m-dash-on-iphone-smartphone-or-tablet/

We should too! (And we might as well add the en dash and the bullet like the iPhone does; how else are people going to make whales? http://40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lr5ihghZVw1qast4so1_400.png )
