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?
