I think it would look a bit strange if you were to put a space after the 
ellipsis but not before it. So if you're not going to put a space in front, you 
shouldn't put one after it either.

  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.
