#45924 new enhancement

Twenty Nineteen: Consider making the "—" divider in the header translatable.

Twenty Nineteen uses an em dash to separate the site title from the tagline:


As originally noted by @pixolin in the Twenty Nineteen GitHub repository, in non-english languages, the em dash is not always the most appropriate/common character for this situation. To address this, we should consider allowing this to be translatable.

Note that the em dash is currently inserted (and hidden when appropriate) via CSS, so this could require a bit of a reworking of that functionality.
