Yes, good point about consistency within a work; I certainly aim for that.
In your example, a comma followed by four full stops, it’s been transcribed as just that — no ellipsis and no templates.
I would have done the same, but used the
template because it makes the dots “no-wrap” so they will always stick together on one line.
Which is really why I raised this thread here, because I’m starting to think that there might not be much point in using the ellipsis character ever! People on typewriters use dots, people with pens use dots… who apart from the unicode consortium has ever used a single three-dot character? (I’m sort of being facetious.)
