en or em on screen typography?

We should note that all that en-em dash stuff is very sensitive not only to languages, typographical habits, BUT also to the fonts specified in the css. Outline versions provide some forms, not always standard, but this is worst in small bitmaped sizes where you lack of so many nuances—that in some case, en looks too narrow and em fit better; when in printed world, its not the case.

Typographic rules have limits conducted by your eyes.
