I'm trying to create an em dash in iBooks Author. I can use Option + Shift + Dash to create this: — , but it breaks if it occurs near the end of a line. If I hit Option + Dash I get this: --, and it is non-breaking...but looks bad. This is simply two dashes strung together, although these two dashes are non-breaking.


Am I missing something here? Or is there simply no non-breaking em dash in iBooks Author?
