Often used at the end of a body of quoted text to designated the trailing-off end (where the relevant part stops), or sometimes to represent something in the middle which had been ommited in-order to crop-down, shorten, the text formerly containing a few ‘filler’ words. Incorrectly, instead the manual tripple-dot{...} which consumes more width might proceed or take the place of such excerpted text; the reason that the official horizontal ellpisis{…} is correct in the case of quoting whereas the tripple-dot{...} is not.. is that the person whose words were pulled may actually *have* had a clause in it, which should be represented rather by three manual dots{...}, so as to elminate any confusion one should experience when reading, as well as protect one's piece from more- conceivably possible plagiarism.
