[bksvol-discuss] Re: handling of the ellipses

Hi Misha, that is my understanding as well, and that is how I treat ellipses in my scans.

I thought the manual was changed to say make ellipses three dots with no spaces and treat them like a word. That is, if the ellipsis is in the middle of a sentence then it should have blank spaces around it just like a word. If there is an ellipsis at the end of a sentence and a period or question mark after it, then like a word there would be a space before it, but no space between it and the period or question mark (so in the case of the period after, that would make four dots in a row).

    Hi everyone,

    Since we are on the discussion of the manual, I'll add my question
    on the handling of the ellipses...
    The manual says the ellipses are to be kept at 3 dots without any
    spaces, and no spaces before or after it.
    When there is a question mark, and an ellipses, I leave it as is
    -- ?... If there is a period and an ellipses, so, we end up with 4
    dots, are we changing that to 3 dots?

    As to the em dashes, I assume like Lori, that the converter takes
    care of it, so I've been leaving them as is.

    Thanks,
    Vivian
