Hi Barry,

I like language purity, but in this case I reluctantly have to
agree that "ellipsize" is better. "Elide" is from latin "elidare"
(to crush out), so the etymology fits perfectly. But "ellipsize"
is just more understandable at first sight... even if it is a made
up word.

I'm sorry that I lead you on here.
