I don't think 3 dots in a row is an ellipse.

Ellipsis is the singular form.

An ellipsis COULD be viewed as three dots, but better as 5.

Code: Select all

              
              .
                    
.             .              .
   
              .               
the exterior dots being the ellipsis' center, and the interior being the midpoint.

Doing it as three lines one would have to do a REALLY good job of connecting the left to the right.
