§ 164. Ellipsis

July 8, 2010




Everyone knows ellipsis...




So every day we shall go to the same spot, and be friends together, and I shall kiss her... But no! That would not be right!
Tolstoy



To you, poverty is the greatest misfortune that can befall a man, but I think it is a thousand times easier to go begging in rags than to... You wouldn’t understand that, though...
Chekhov




But not everyone knows they should avoid the special character that was designed to take up as few bytes as possible and be used with monospaced fonts (…).



For books and other dignified publications, the proper way to make an ellipsis is to type three periods (...).
