I've been validating some pages at validator.w3.org. It had a problem
with … for the ellipsis character, and I can understand that
since that's Windows character set, not iso-8859-1. So I changed them
all to ….

But I'm wondering about browser coverage. Is a significant number of
users likely to see a garbage character now, instead of ellipsis?
Should I just replace it with three dots instead?
