How to type "…"?
How can I type "…"? (As in the three little periods sandwiched together.)

The regular ellipsis mark (…) is Alt+0133 on a Windows machine. However, that's a Western ellipsis and I'm not sure it's the same character in Chinese. It'd be a shame if it broke the monospaced beauty of Chinese by being a nonstandard width. Additionally, a real Chinese ellipsis should be six dots (just use it twice) and centered vertically, but this might just be a matter of font choice, I don't know.
I'm looking forward to diving into Chinese typography when my reading skills are better (the language is just so much more suited to it than Western languages are).

Speaking of punctuation, we're touching a big advantage of Baidu over Google : handle a punctuation search.
