# [XeTeX] Ellipsis

Hi,

if I input an ellipsis via the unicode symbol (…=u2026) or via \dots  I
get in both variants a pdf in which I can select the three dots only as
a whole. If I copy them to the editor (gedit), I get different results
depending on whether I copy from acroread or from evince. (I use ubuntu
10.10):

acroread: The editor shows an ellipsis.
evince: The editor shows three normal dots.

Why is that? I would like it, that the symbol is always copy-pasted as
an ellipsis.

bye
