Hi Shelley,
An ellipses is to be represented as three periods without spaces between,
but surrounded by spaces unless the next, or previous character is a
punctuation mark.  However, if there are four periods, the first period
should immediately follow the word before the periods, followed by a space,
and then the ellipses.
Hope that helps.

Hi you all, can you quickly refresh my memory, are elipsis supposed to be
the three preiods with no spaces between them in files or left as a . space
. space .  A book I am preproofing before I submit uses a lot of them, and I
mean a lot of ... to represent a ... of things.
Thanks, naturally I didn't pay attention to the discussion regarding this
topic before, sigh.
If I need to put the periods together, is there a quick Find and replace I
could do to get the job done well and quick.
