    • Hehe, when I'm concerned about typography I always write \ldots, but even if I didn't, my editor would do that for me. Unless I'm in math mode, for in that case I use amsmath's \dots which chooses the right dots for the given expression. Well, just to say something\ldots

      • It’s Unicode codepoint U+2026.

        In HTML and XML, you can represent it as “…” (or “…” – or “…” for “horizontal ellipsis” but only in HTML).

        My .vimrc says “digraphs .. 8230”, so that Ctrl-K . . will produce a proper ellipsis.

        In gtk+/GNOME apps, you can enter any Unicode codepoint by typing it while holding down Ctrl-Shift. (But it should be avoided on use Perl as it is not (yet?) completely Unicode-clean.)

        (Yes, I have also memorised a bunch of other codepoints, like U+201C and U+201D for the English curly doublequotes, and U+2013 and U+2014 for en- and em-dashes. I know, I know.)
