[UEB] Ellipsis following a period

Belated Happy New Year, Everyone.

 

In a book I'm proofing, there are cases of words followed by four dots for
the period and ellipsis which appear to be all joined to the word in print.
The transcriber has put a space after the period and then inserted the three
ellipsis dots. As far as I can determine, UEB sec. 7.3 doesn't clearly
address this situation. Is it wrong, therefore, for the space to be left
between the period and the ellipsis even though all four dots are unspaced
in print?

 

Many thanks.
