Well, unlike in Doug's example (thanks for setting up that page, BTW), in
real life we just want that a paragraph that ends with bang+ellipsis (or,
more rarely, with ellipsis+bang) will not be displayed with a line break
between those two punctuantions -- we want them unbroken and connected to
the last word of the paragraph.
(The same for question marks, em dashes and interrobangs; and, more
exotically, for sentences beggining with multiple punctuantions.)

Which is an excellent piece of information! :-) (It reminds me that I
should some day report about the weir Portuguese hyphen and how I do it in
HTML and in DTP.)

Yep, same here, with IE 6.0.2800.1106. Interestingly enough, Opera 7.23
3227 simply does not break the H1 line at all.

Sorry, I never arrived back then, so I'm posting again, since it is still
as interesting now as it was whan I originally typed it (or so I hope! ;-)
The same goes for some other similar messages.
