You don't, at least no directly. The overflow property doesn't apply to
fo:table-cell directly since that FO doesn't generate a viewport, only a
reference area. If you want to clip cell contents you put a
block-container with the desired extents as a direct child of the cell
and you set the overflow property there.

That'll work with Apache FOP 0.93.
