The goal is not to make the individual characters in U:-- not change
displayed width.  To do that, you'd have to make each character as wide
as the widest glyph in the font, and that will be really ugly.  The goal
is to make the "-" wide enough that you can click it, which is why they
should have a char-spacing property of "one normal character".
