    le tiret du 6 est un "dash", et le tiret du 8 est en dessous de la ligne d'écriture

    En français :

    "tiret du 6" = - "tiret"
    "tiret du 8" = _ well, "underscore" in English but as a lot of people don't know it, they go with "tiret du 8" to differentate it from the other "tiret".

    They use this because this is where they are on a French keyboard:

    Le "tiret du 6" is also called "trait d'union".

    Some french people used "underscore" too for the "tiret du 8".

    Pour le tiret du 8 ou "underscore" j'entends souvent "blanc souligné" ou "tiret bas"

    tiret bas, c'est parfait car c'est français, comme trait d'union.
