This is the mdash template, it looks like this " — ".

It works similarly to the html markup sequence " — ". That is, a non-breaking space, a long dash (known as an em dash) and a normal space.

{{}} and {{emdash}} redirect here and can be used as alternative names for this template.

This template is used when you want something a lot stronger than a bold middot "·", a bullet "•" or a ndash "–".

For horizontal lists use {{Flatlist}} or class="hlist" instead (see WP:HLIST). For vertical lists simply use an en dash "" directly.

Normal usage[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

The recommended usage is to use no space before the template and one space after the template, like this:

[[Salt]]{{mdash}} [[Pepper]]

It will render one space on each side of the dash, like this:

SaltPepper

If it line breaks then the line break will come after the dash, not before, like this:

Salt
Pepper

Incorrect usage[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

If the template is used slightly wrong it will in some cases still behave well. For instance if there are no or several spaces after the template. Like these examples:

[[Salt]]{{mdash}}[[Pepper]]
[[Salt]]{{mdash}}   [[Pepper]]

Both of them will render exactly as before, with just one space on each side of the dash, like this:

SaltPepper

And it will still only line break after the dash, like this:

Salt
Pepper

But putting one or more spaces before the template will cause problems, like these examples:

[[Salt]] {{mdash}}[[Pepper]]
[[Salt]]   {{mdash}}[[Pepper]]
[[Salt]] {{mdash}} [[Pepper]]
[[Salt]]   {{mdash}}   [[Pepper]]

Then it will render with two spaces before the dash, and one after, like this:

Salt  — Pepper

And if it line breaks it might break before the dash, like this:

Salt
 — Pepper

Because Wikipedia suppresses the contents of templates in tool tip preview when the user hovers the pointer over a Wikilink, one should avoid using the Mdash template in an article's lead section. Using the template will cause a confusing blank space to appear in the tool tip preview instead of the expected em-dash character. Instead, use  — or  — , and be sure to add the trailing space.

Technical details[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

The space before the dash is a non-breaking space. That means it will not line break and will not collapse together with normal spaces that come before the template.

The space after the dash is a normal space. That means it wraps (allows line breaks) and it will collapse together with normal spaces that come after the template to form one single space.
