You are correct, Dale. I goofed in agreeing is was the equal sign and
Wikipedia is incorrect also on this point.
Nope, I am mistaken, it is the equal sign what no less of an authority than the ITU
calls a "double hyphen":!!PDF-E.pdf

Dale, the character I think you're referring to is the "em-dash" (--)
that is also used in print to separate thoughts. It does not appear as
a separate character in the ITU list. I suppose if it was needed it
would be sent as two successive hyphens.
