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.
