Usage[rediger]

This template is not universally accepted, and in some cases the ellipsis character (… ) should be used instead. Please consider conventions presented in the Wikisource:Style guide before deciding which to use.

The intention is replace an ellipsis with single, non-breaking spaces between the ellipsis marks.

The following shortcuts have been created:

{{...}} The keyboard characters for full stops/periods, unspaced
{{. . .}} The keyboard characters for full stops/periods, with single spaces
{{}} The ellipsis glyph

Example:

It is a worse disgrace. {{...}}" her full rage burst out at last, "{{...}} a worse disgrace than the hospitals at Scutari."

will render as:

It is a worse disgrace. . . ." her full rage burst out at last, ". . . a worse disgrace than the hospitals at Scutari."

Multiple dots[rediger]

Use the first parameter to control the number of dots.

Example:

Dots are believed by many writers of our day to be a good substitute for effective writing. They are certainly an easy one. Let us have a few more{{...|6}}

will render as:

Dots are believed by many writers of our day to be a good substitute for effective writing. They are certainly an easy one. Let us have a few more. . . . . .

Different characters[rediger]

If a different symbol is used instead of the period ("."), add a second parameter to change the symbol. If the first parameter is left empty, it defaults to 1.

Example:

Some writers use asterisks {{...|3|*}} for their ellipses instead of periods.

will render as:

Some writers use asterisks * * * for their ellipses instead of periods.
