Hi Cindy,
   To add something here—If there is a period and then an 
ellipsis, you need to put a space between them, like this. ...
This   . ...

    Thanks very much, Aidee.
I have to go now and change 
      them in the book I'm proofing now. smile And I'm going to add it to my 
      note about the em dash and footnotes.

        I think we were told to treat it like a word--put a 
        space before and
after it if it appears in the middle of a sentence 
        and put a period
with no spaces between the ellipsis and the period 
        if it's at the end
of a sentence. In a lot of books, the ellipses 
        don't come out
right--at least, not in the .brf versions. Does anyone 
        know why this
would be the case?

Thanks for your example on 
        footnotes Cindy.
