[bksvol-discuss] Re: dis dis dis

We're so fortunate to have sighted volunteers and those friends and family
members who are willing to help out. I can't tell you how many times other
Bookshare volunteers have helped me with a project.

Thanks to all of you, and a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving to everyone.

Blessings.

Lynnsky and Liberty

Hi everyone!

Valerie Maples was so helpful in checking some lines from the Amazon peek
for me to see if she could find out what this meant.

Here is what she said.

In all the cases you gave me the represent an ellipsis or three periods with
no spaces before or after.

HTH!
Valerie
