batch-reassigning all Garrett Blythe bugs to Don Melton
Re-assigned to firstname.lastname@example.org. Troy, is this a layout problem? If not, who should get this bug?
Setting all current Open/Normal to M4.
Since this is working on NT, I believe the entity stuff in the parser is not the problem. It's likey either a font bug or a char mapping problem. Either way, I think you guys should own this.

Works for me on 4/5 build on US NT4: <UL> <LI> &mdash: &mdash <LI> &#8212: — <LI> &ndash: &ndash <LI> &#8211: – </UL>
Chris Petersen, this looks fine to me under Mac OS, NT, and 98. I've put a test case at the URL indicated above. However, using linux I don't see the dashes. Could you please verify this? (I used a late March bulid on linux; I'd prefer you tried with a newer build...) Thanks.

This bug is specifically for Windows. Please don't mention Linux here. Open a new bug for Linux, if necessary.
Chris Petersen, I'm going ahead and verifying this as fixed (and opening a new bug against linux).
