In our software, we use the ellipsis by itself as a "Browse" button (displays a
standard file search dialog box). So, I refer to it as the Browse button and often will
put a bmp of the button after the text.

As as side note, this weekend I was editing a manual that someone else wrote. I
ran into several instances in the document of "the three ellipses". Well, at least it is
job security :)
