it's called an em dash. —
microsoft word automatically creates it when you type in two dashes -- followed by a space.
alternatively, you can hold down the ALT key, and then type in 0151 on the numeric keypad to create it.
make sure to type in all four digits, not 151, but 0151.
if you want more special characters. go to windows start, click on programs, then click on accessories, and select the character map.
