Occasionally I find the need to include an ellipsis in my writing. I could just use three periods, but that's bad typography. Is there a way to insert … just using the keyboard? Similar to how you can insert — by holding down Alt and pressing 0150 on the numberpad. Is there a similar combination for inserting an ellipsis?

Just for reference: on Linux/X11 it is <Compose>, period, period. – Andrey Vihrov Dec 11 '12 at 9:09

In Windows it's alt+0133 on the numberpad.
