HELP - This sucks.

I did replace all my "--" entries with "&dash;&dash;"
in my SGML code, and the <screen>-sections look
terrible, since the &dash; is rendered with a font,
which is much wider than the mono-spaced font used in
the <screen>-section.

So

<screen>
drxw------ DIR
-rwxrwxrwx FILE
</screen>

Looks like

drxw------------ DIR  <---cannot show loooong dashes :-)
-rwxrwxrwx FILE

in the PDF - alignment is bad.

AND -rw-r&dash;&dash;r&dash;&dash;
is actually rendeded as
-rw-r----r----
Yes &dash;&dash; gives four dashes....

I have a problem, since I have a book to finish next
week and promised the publisher a PDF-file ready to
print.
