I attempted to use an em dash on some fingerings. Two problems:

1. It causes the font size of the fingering number to increase by about 50%
2. There is a space between the em and the 1

See attached png, which is the output from

\version "2.11.63"

\relative c''
        c^\markup {\finger "1"}
        c^\markup {\finger \char ##x2014 "1"}

Curious, I wonder how those dashes are produced. On a macintosh, en and em dashes can be easily inserted with option,- or option, shift,-. See the attached output. Where I tried using the en and em dashes produced just by normal utf-8.
\version "2.11.63"
\relative c'' { c4-1 s2. }
\relative c'' { c4^\markup {\finger "1"} s2. }
\relative c'' { c4^\markup {\finger \char ##x2014 "1"} s2. }
\relative c'' { c4^\markup {\finger –1} s2. }
\relative c'' { c4^\markup {\finger —1} s2. }
