I don't speak LaTeX, Sasi, but this hybrid approach
seems to work :

\documentclass {minimal}
\font \bodyfont = "Arial Unicode MS:mapping=tex-text"
\begin {document}
Number range : 80--95

Em-dash : used to set off --- parenthetical -- clauses

``Smart quotes''
\end {document}

Am willing to study any document that is available online if that would help. The reason I am insisting on this is that I am preparing a document for publication and I would like it to look as "authentic" as I can.
