implement just text-overflow:clip, before clarifying behavior of text-overflow:ellipsis from CSS3 text
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1a2pre) Gecko/20080827161710 Minefield/3.1a2pre Build Identifier: After implementing text-overflow:clip should be much easier to implement text-overflow:ellipsis - when we decide how to solve all theoretical problems and chose the correct behavior. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: The same as in bug 312156
So in IE text-overflow:clip is the default value, i.e., normal behavior, at least according to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms531174.aspx . Not that the name 'clip' makes sense for the normal behavior. Then again http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/#text-overflow saying ellipsis is the initial value doesn't make any sense either. I'm not sure what clip does, but I suspect if it does something other than the default behavior, it would have many of the same issues as ellipsis. So I don't see any reason we'd want to implement 'clip' without implementing 'ellipsis', although a spec that actually makes sense could potentially change my mind. Then again, that's what bug 312156 is waiting on...
