I can address that.

Format Kernighan & Cherry's "Typesetting Mathematics -- User's Guide (Second
Edition)" for PostScript or PDF and watch the page header bounce back and
forth between hyphens and minus signs.


1. Obtain the paper's source files. 
2. Apply the attached patch.
3. make eqnuser.pdf
4. Compare, e.g., the page headers on pages 2 and 3.

Optional step 2a--review the patch file and verify that there is nothing up my
sleeve.  The sources of the user's guide are the files starting with "g".

(file #54594)
