Fobby English Question of the Day

(Damn, it's been a long time since I posted one… :p)

Today's question is about correct punctuation: Ellipsis (aka dot-dot-dot).

In English, is it correct only to write it as three baseline dots (“...”) or is it accepted to write it as three middle dots (“···”) as well?  'Cause in Korean (and I'm pretty sure Japanese is the same too) it's three middle dots, whereas in English I've seen mixed usages.
