As planned, I have moved the skeleton definition of
text-overflow:ellipsis from CSS3-Text[1] to CSS3-UI[2], and then
expanded it to address new information and details.

[1] http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/#text-overflow
[2] http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-ui/#text-overflow  <-- this is the
one you want.

(anyone know how to create more usable/sharable non-#-abusing URLs for
WebKit CSS documentation?)

I've applied the filter of only documenting what appears to be
interoperably implemented, dropping things like the <string> value
that are not (I'm willing to consider such forward looking features
for CSS4-UI).

If text-overflow:ellipsis interests you, please take a look.

If something seems vague or underspecified, please phrase your request
for clarification as
* a question about a specific case "What happens when ..."
* and/or an HTML+CSS test case that illustrates an example of what you
think is vaguely specified.

I'm especially interested in test cases which demonstrate behavior in
existing implementations that appear to contradict the spec, as the
intent of the spec is to reflect existing interoperable
implementations.

Thanks,

Tantek
