Hi Lori,
I always put a space after  the third dot, if the elipsis appears in the
middle of a sentence, but not if there is a period or quotation mark after
Just me.

I know this topic has come up many times, but I'm confused again.
In the latest issue of the Volunteer Manual it states not to place a space
before the first dot and to remove all spaces between the three dots, but it
does not state what to do after the third dot if the ellipsis occurs in the
middle of a sentence as it often does.
Ellipses are frequently used in mid-sentence in dialog, and I want to be
sure to handle them correctly.
