Divider Punctuation

When we need to separate distinct pieces of information on a single line, we use the middle dot” ( • ) instead of a pipe ( | ) or a shift in typography. You can type the middle dot by hitting option + 8 on your Mac or PC.

This Is a Headline • This is the longer subhead!

Don’t use a middle dot to separate items that should be on two lines.

Do use a middle dot to divide related but distinct pieces of information.
