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

      Hi Folks,
     I’m not quite sure how to punctuate the following.  Can anyone help me, 
     The sentence is
  “You are a member of the ‘Community’...”
  Between the apostrophe and the ellypsis, should there be a space or not?  
Thanks so much!
