Hi Gary,

I've been using Consolas font for code, and ran into a problem that might
be a non-issue with the Font Forge Inconsolata-dz font. In Consolas, when
I convert the FrameMaker files to PDF, the hyphen character does not
convert properly. It looks ok when viewed in the PDF, but when the
character is copied-and-pasted from the PDF into a text editor, the hyphen
ends up as a different character.

And indeed, when I posted my issue to the STC LW email list, you replied
suggesting Inconsolata-dz; do you know whether the hyphen copies-and-pastes
