Hitch, thank you for the feedback. and it's worth waaaaay more than $.02.
Ya, I should have included some examples
Some paragraphs from my current Mark Twain project:
Quotation marks followed by ellipsis:
“... Isabella is far too indulgent to me & even the Miss Crafords say that they wonder at her patience with me & it is indeed true for my temper is a bad one.”
Ellipsis followed by punctuation, ellipsis surrounded by spaces:
“I’ve forgot to say, but I’ve four lovers, the other one is Harry Watson, a very delightful boy... . James Keith hardly ever Spoke to me, he said Girl! make less noise... . Craky hall ... walked to that delightfull place with a delightful young man beloved by all his friends and espacialy by me his loveress but I must not talk any longer about him for Isa said it is not proper for to speak of gentalman but I will never forget him... .
Punctuation followed by ellipsis:
Dear Editors: I do it with pleasure, ... but I also do it with pain, because I am not in sympathy with this movement.
Some of these might be because it is 1904 book -- it seems punctuation rules were different then.
The ellipsis following punctuation and the one surrounded by spaces are the weirdest to deal with, I think.
