(Dating from my days as an actual editor, when I allowed myself a larger collection of pet peeves.) There at AP's online "Ask the Editor" forum* was what I think of as some bad hyphenation advice: The editor is thinking of the construction sometimes ed suspensive hyphen, in which a phrase like "the two-part and three-part inventions" is reduced to "the two- and three-part inventions." Or "a four-nht or five-nht hotel stay" becomes "a four- or five-nht hotel stay." Those suspensive hyphens (with word spaces following them) work when the numbers are treated as units.

Same thing with the hotel stay (as billed by the hotel): There's no four-and-a-half nht visit.

But when the numbers express a continuous, inclusive range, and they're joined by to rather than and or or, shouldn't the hyphenation show that continuous relationship?
