# Special characters

I'm using XeLaTeX to compile my document. If I write in my document --- I don't get , but --- in my PDF document. Same for (--) character. I'm sure that font which I'm using have this character (Myriad Pro). Are there other ways to get this characters working?If copy&paste this character, it works then. But never when using -- or --- shortcuts.
