Hi Tung,

UEB 7.3.1 does not say to space the ellipsis whenever it occurs unless it indicates an omission of part of a word. It says to space the ellipsis if that is what print does or if the print is indeterminate or inconsistent. If it's clearly unspaced in print, follow suit.

When an unspaced ellipsis and word fall at the end of a braille line, they should be brought down together to the next line, as a single symbols-sequence.

Braille on,
