FS#2882 double dash -> hyphen in monospaced text
a double dash in the wiki syntax is rendered into a (wide) mdash in html.
This is also true for ''monospaced'' text.
I feel this shouldn't be the case, because often short command lines are entered as ''monospaced''. If there are double-dash options like ''cp --help'' in the command, the double dash will be mangled into a single mdash.
Using the monospaced text syntax means that DokuWiki applies a monospaces font to your text.
For disabling interpretation you need to wrap your string with %%...%%
syntax is interpretated:
''test -- str->ing''
syntax is not interpretated:
''%%test -- str->ing%%''
Or, alternatively, you could use the UnformattedCode plugin [https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:unformattedcode] and use the standard monospace syntax.
