Word 2000 I think (on XP).

The conversion seems to happen most predictably when you are typing, 
type the '--', then the following space, something like what happens 
when you type '1/2' and then a space, where you see conversion to the 
1/2 glyph.
If you already have '-', type some more, then go back and add another 
'-', then the conversion doesn't seem to work.
