Until now I always used a - (minus sign) to define a sub sentence or for an
optional word, like:
    This is -now- not necessary,

I understood that normally you use the em dash for this. But for only a
word, this seems a little big. Could I then use an en dash or should I keep
using a minus sign?

In which other places should they be used?
