  • As used by the copyeditor's favorite agony aunt, the estimable Carol Fisher Saller, on the Chicago Manual of Style's Q&A page:

    "The best approach is to avoid strings of hyphens or en dashes, and combining them should be an absolute last resort. Give yourself a limit of two or three typographical boogers in a row, and whenever there’s danger of exceeding it, consider rewriting."
