ms provides a few strings to obtain typographical symbols not easily entered with the keyboard. These and many others are available as special character escape sequences—see the groff_char(7) man page.

String: \*[-]

Interpolate an em dash.

String: \*[Q]
String: \*[U]

Interpolate typographer’s quotation marks where available, and neutral double quotes otherwise. \*Q is the left quote and \*U the right.
