Built-in containers like dict use an ellipsis to represent a recursive item.  In the symbols index, “...” only links to the secondary prompt; I think it should also link to a paragraph explaining the display of recursive containers.

... is also the Ellipsis object, and it is probably even more important that the index cross reference that usage :)
