Hi Alicia, I figured out what the difference is. The spec talks about - as a hyphen, between two words. What you have in this text are a couple free-standing hyphens (which should really be em dashes aka hyphen pairs, but here were rendered as single hyphens. For example "They were a mixed lot - taxi-drivers, a group ...". The first "-" is a dash, not a hyphen as described in the spec. Thanks for commenting. Others may have fallen into the same trap. Cheers MichaelW
