Actually, I think just one search and replace operation will do the job.

Search for period space period, and replace with period period.

It's easy to do things mechanically sometimes, as I have been doing with fixing 
the ellipses, but I think this will be enough to get them all.

  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.
