Are you looking at the file in Firefox? If so, those dashes are not part 
of the file. Firefox displays them when you open an XML file which does 
not have an associated stylesheet. If you click on a dash, Firefox 
collapses the element, and the dash changes to a +. Click on the + to 
expand the element again.
