Huh?  Your patch as proposed contains an embedded UTF-8 ellipis, 
presumably in a location such that it will only be used for 
texinfo->HTML translation.  Why not replace that string constant with 
"…" for the @dots{} command in HTML output?  Presumably plain 
text output formats get the other "..." string which is three ASCII dots?
