I was thinking that too Tim, but having never posted on this list I
didn't want it to be my first post. Some of us on here are not experts
in accessibility, hence why we subscribe to learn more. A private post
to the person would have been sufficient enough. Public humiliation is
not the best way to get a message across.

And in addition, if the use of ellipsis is inaccessible, then generation
Y must not be able to communicate with a lot of people (have you ever
seen an msn conversation between gen Y friends).
