    Hyphen for text, dash for code.

    @mt3o I sometimes get caught off guard when I ask someone to give me a URL/code/script/etc in tech and says Hyphens instead of Dashes.

    Much like saying pound sign instead of hashtags. Pound signs for phones. Hashtags for everything else.

    The hyphen, en-dash and em-dash all have their place.

    I thought that people in different regions, like USA and UK or even US north and south, use different names for the same thing. One learns all the time.

    Speaking of # what's with the "hash" and "bang" names? I know that 'sharp' has vertical lines straight and is used in music.
