I thought text overflow is an open issue.

(may I state that overflow itself is being defined in many CSS3 and CSS4 
modules with no common behavior between them, ei. writing-mode and grid).

Also, the behavior of ellipsis (and overflow) needs to be defined when 
they appear in an element with overflow with either values of auto or 
scroll. I explained this in May [1]. Another test case is below. What 
should happen?

(just wondering if FF6 has dropped support)



div {
    overflow: auto;
    margin: 1em;
    height: 6em;
    width: 400px;
    text-overflow: ellipsis;

span { background: green; border-right: 2px solid red }
span span { border-right: 2px solid lime }
