Further thoughts / questions about ellipses.
Sometimes they lead into the first sentence of a paragraph. Would you consider it necessary to use NBSP to join them to the first word? Since they are at the start of the paragraph, it's unlikely they would be orphaned.

I've also seen, sometimes within the same paragraph, the ellipsis by itself with no other punctuation, the ellipsis preceded by punctuation, and the ellipsis followed by punctuation. What's your best-practice way to handle it with preceding punctuation?
