Why has bbPress got it in for the hyphen/minus?
I find that in email notifications, the hyphen/dash is being escaped into the character string – (em-dash) when it occurs in topic titles, forum titles and user display names. I have not tested forum names.
For a topic with the title as on the following line:
Hyphen – endash – emdash — nonbr hyphen ‑ figure dash ‒
all these characters survive except for the first hyphen/minus sign. If this same sequence is included in the body of a topic, it is delivered OK, so this is NOT a WP server or email issue. This does not occur in notifications for a WP post, so I believe it is a bbPress issue.
I have tested this under WP v5.0.3 and with bbPress v2.5.14 the only active plugin and with the theme Twenty Nineteen.
