It could even depend on the Mozilla version. V1.6 on a Linux box does
not display anything where the dashes are (apparently) supposed to be,
and of course cutting and pasting that part doesn't include the
missing dashes. I can't even see them in "view source". But here is
the pertinent part of the HTML sources:

It looks to me like the (possibly) offending character would be an
0xAD, i.e. the ISO-8859-1 soft hyphen. (Sheesh, somebody is using that
in lieu of an em dash? Astonishing.)

Interestingly, in Mozilla's "view source" I see the spaces on both
sides of the (suppressed) hyphens, but copying and pasting from there
into an emacs -nw inside an xterm canonicalizes those to a single
space each.
