Description Unknown 2002-05-13 21:42:54 UTC
Currently, when a user types ... (three consecutive periods), the periods are
not AutoCorrected into the ellipsis character (Alt+0133 on Windows).  I suggest
adding into AutoCorrect (and turning on by default) this option, the same way as
two hyphens (--) are automatically changed into a dash.

This is somewhat related to issue 4297, which deals with spell-checking
sentences with ellipsis.
