txt->epub removes hyphens / dashes / double minus-signs

Hi. I'm converting a .txt file to an .epub. I use double minus-signs to show hyphens. The resulting epub has the double minus-signs removed.

The text file is a copy-and-paste from a .rtf if that makes any different. I don't mind using a different symbol for hyphens if that works. Suggestions welcome. Thanks.

Hmm. The same text in a .rtf file converts fine. i.e. it retains the -- sign. I suppose I'll just paste back into .rtf and convert to .epub. I would like to know while it doesn't convert okay from .txt.
