BubbaJake -- Well, I researched this a bit more.
and neither of the examples I gave are technically correct.
If you were typing a document you were going to hand to someone (not sure how trying to code this would work, so maybe internet rules are different) You would use an ellipsis (3 dots -- called ellipsis marks, even though they look just like dots to me -- with a space between each ellipsis mark) and then a period since the ellipsis is at the end of the sentence.
Maybe I should notify a moderator . . . .
Somehow this all seems crazily scrupulous, though. Just throwing a bunch of dots down in whatever number is much more cool.
For what it's worth.For those careful enough to want to use ellipses correctly.
Hamer -- did you ever figure out that game?
