Another question about the en/emdashes... does it matter if they're orphaned and fall onto the next line? I know I avoid it for ellipses, but it's never bothered me if an emdash should fall on the next line like so (but I could be very wrong about that since I'm still such a newb at this and perhaps it should be avoided too):
