Hm... I'm curious to know why this is a global Mac OS thing. For example, a text editor app I use called Chocolate will not format "--" as "––". Note that I have my smart quotes and dashes turned on. However, when entering hyphens into textedit it will turn the two "--" into "––" automatically. (I also converted everything to plain text to make sure and the smart dash "––" remained) From this little experiment it seems like turning off/on smart dashes and quotes would in fact be possible from within an app. Please let me know where I'm going wrong if I'm off-base.
