[bksvol-discuss] Re: proofreading question

Hi Cindy,
Thanks, that example is clear, not underlined.  And I think I know the others, 
but just wanted to check.  Since they are to be treated like a word, I assume 
that if there is a quotation mark before the elipsis, it should appear as 
quotation, elipsis and space.  And the same at the end of a sentence, elipsis, 
period without a space, or quotation, or whatever punctuation is at the end, 
without a space.  That is how I have been doing it and I hope it is right.

Sue S.

I  don't know if this works better--first the explanation---space, 3 dots 
without spaces betwee, then another spa ce to separate the ellipsis from the 
next word. As she said, treat the 3 unspaced dots as if it were a word--here's 
the example, if it works for you:   ...

  I can’t read the examplles very well, because I got that awful underlining 
with dots 7 and 8 all across the lines.  Could someone send it without that, 
please?

  Thanks in advance,

  Sue S.

  Hi Chanelle,

  Here is pasted below what we agreed upon for the handling of the ellipsis so 
that we conform with braille code.

  See below.

  Please let me know if you have any questions.

  Mayrie

  Formatting The Ellipsis

  The ellipsis should be punctuated as if it were a word. Examples:
  "Fools rush in ."

  "... for they shall inherit the earth"
  "Breathe, Mellissa. In ... and out. In ... 
  and out."
  An ellipsis and a period.  Sometimes an ellipsis appears to be four dots 
rather than three. This is because the ellipsis is either preceded or followed 
by a period. Since the braille period is not the same as the dots of an 
ellipsis, it must be determined which of the four dots is the period.

  If the sentence is incomplete, does not contain a subject and a verb and 
express a complete thought, then the ellipsis is taking the place of missing 
words within the sentence--in which the period immediately follows the 
ellipsis, just as it would a word. If a sentence is gramatically complete, the 
first dot represents the period and the ellipsis represents a following missing 
sentence or sentences. In this case a blank cell (a space) is left between the 
period and the following ellipsis.
  Example:
  As you can see, I have followed your career. ... As to my own .... Well, you 
know the story.

  Dear Volunteer list,
  If there is a period after a word followed by a space and then three periods, 
would I delete the period and space after the word so that it would be followed 
by the ellipses? Or do I leave the original period after the word, delete the 
space, and then just have four periods? Maybe it doesn't matter, but since we 
are not supposed to alter the text, I thought that I would ask.

  Chanelle
