} Hmm. Now of late people have been telling me that the first word after the
} ellipse is capitalized. I can't find my bloody English grammar book, so I'm
} uncertain. Anyone no for sure which is the official way to spell the word
} after the ellipse?

To the best of my understanding, it depends on whether (for
lack of better terms) you're trailing a sentence off, or
putting in a pause.

So, for example:

"I shouldn't say this... but I will."

Here, "but" is uncapitalized, because I'm continuing the
same sentence/train of thought.  On the other hand:

"What he said to me...  Enough about that."

This time, "Enough" is capitalized, because the ellipsis
represents an actual interruption.
