That doesn't help for all Browsers. Some of them simply don't support
the vertical ellipsis, no matter how you spell it . They will instead
display whatever they use for a missing glyph.
I don't think we can't work around this portably without damaging the
semantics of the text. I'm now in favour of ignoring this problem and
letting the Browsers fix it. It's a rendering problem, after all.
