copying+pasting screen examples

I am trying to re-do the DNS section for use with RPMs instead of
tarball. I have just noticed that I can't correctly copy and paste the
examples I have done using {{{ }}}. I assume these will be converted
to <screen> tags eventually, maybe the problem will go away then.

For example, copying the /etc/named.conf options section from
appears as the following in vim:

options {
          directory "/etc/bind";
          allow--­query {any;};
          recursion no;
          pid--­file "/var/run/named/";
          zone--­statistics yes;
          statistics-­f-ile "/etc/bind/named­stats.log";

There are double "-" characters, however these characters did not
appear when I copied them from vim into here :( . These options will
not be valid when double "-" characters are used. I'm not sure if this
is a huge problem, but I thought it would be ncie if people could copy
and paste these samples to get a basic working configuration before
changing it to suit their needs. I was thinking of putting a warning
to look out for this, but I thought it would look sloppy.

Has anyone had this problem before?

Kind Regards,
