The new rules say no space; here's what I copied and pasted nto my notes:

Ellipsis:  do not put a space before it (i.e., between the word and the
ellipsis)  but do put a space before the next word if it appears in the
middle of a sentence; put a period with no spaces between the ellipsis and
the period if it's at the end of a sentence

 hth (and that I'm right smile
