Editorial:

"The ellipsis should be styled consistent with the text being ellipsed." -> "The ellipsis should be styled consistently with the text being ellipsed."

Also, I don't think "ellipsed" is a word. I see "ellipsize" used in programming contexts, but I'm not sure this is a word either. It may be best to use "truncated".
