Ok, my boss is writing a book and his editor gave him back some notes that I have to fix, and it has to be done by 8 am tomorrow morning and he gave it to me at 6 pm all 1,000 pages (and its boring stuff) anyways I came across a comment the editor made that I don't understand, my boss wrote:

market places---both amorphous anyways he circled the three dashes --- and said use N-dashes? what are n-dashes, at first I thought he ment the solid longer dash but in another place my boss did use that one and he again said use an N-dash? what is a n-dash?
