I get this a lot from Indian and British writers. Not sure why.

comment Is it proper to use a colon followed immediately by a hyphen?
Apologies for the delay in responding. I edit technical writing for a living and lately I've seen a lot of colon-dash or colon-hyphen in writing (not sure how those differ in computer text). I often have submissions that have something like I've written above. I should not have used that example with the "3", but something like: "We may write the code as shown here:-"

comment The usage of “Following”
So is this correct grammar? I don't see either of these as an answer, more an analysis.
