Yes for sure to the fourth period. I think when an ellipsis appears between sentences there is a space on either side. I thought there was no space before them when they're within a sentence, but could definitely be wrong on that.

But this is the asylum for deranged perfectionists, where nothing is small enough not to matter. <big grin> Kellie To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
