Also are there any differences using the em dash and the hyphen in US and UK english.
Thank you in advance.

Which one is correct or does it really matter?
Microsoft Word "Title Case" capitalizes every word, is it because of US English?
Anonymous:A dash (sometimes referred to as an em dash) is not at all the same thing as a hyphen.
A hyphen (a short horizontal line with no spaces at either side) is used to join compound words (e.g. self-supporting), double-barreled names (Mr Smith-Jones) and to indicate the continuation of a word on the following line.
A dash is usually longer, with some space at either side; it is used sometimes as a pause before a further comment -- as you might otherwise use a colon or brackets.
Does this have something to do with using title case?
