I have recently been surprised by Spanish punctuation in a number of ways. Currently I am struggling with two problems I have conflated here: dashes and Roman vs Arabic numerals.
A book I am reading atm has this format of naming chapters:
Capítulo I. Procedimiento de arbitraje
My questions are the following:
- Does Spanish punctuation allow the use a dash here? → Capítulo I. — Procedimiento de arbitraje (In French, English, Polish, Czech, Russian, Slovak, German and others you can, but Spanish seems to use dashes that way quite infrequently — or is it me?)
- Does Spanish punctuation allow the use of Arabic numerals in chapters? → Capítulo 1. Procedimiento de arbitraje (i.e. in Polish or Czech you can go with both numbering styles)
