Default American proofs

I am reading proofs that have turned out to use US conventions. I have found any doubtful point in the Chicago Manuel (14th edition), but I am not clear about two points:

1. Is printing 20th with the 'th' up in the air as the French do it (and Microsoft, if you don't watch it!) accepted nowadays in US typography?

2. What is the attitude to spaced en-dashes instead of unspaced em-dashes: are they acceptable now in the UpointSpoint?
