When a block has text-overflow-last not 'clip', and its 'overflow' is not 'visible', and it has one or more lines overflowing vertically, the last line that fully fits in the block (or the first line, if there is no line that fully fits in the block) gets an overflow indicator according to the value of 'text-overflow-last' and the content of any later lines is hidden as if they're clipped out. If a line gets a text-overflow-last indicator, it cannot also get a text-overflow indicator.
