I can reproduce Martins problem but when I write – (Alt + -) and — (Alt + Shift + -)
both symbols appear in the output.

I checked the font (Hoefler Text.ttc on Mac OS 10.8.4) and it contains a emdash
at slot 2014 but its named “emdash.standard”. There is also a character with
the name “emdash” in the font at slot F0010.

Fails here with the following error message:
