10.25. text-overflow Property

The text-overflow property is the head of the sub-family of text overflow properties, working as a shortcut property for text-overflow-mode and text-overflow-ellipsis. It takes on all of the values belonging to those two other properties, namely clip, ellipsis, and ellipsis-word, plus the ellipsis-end, ellipsis-after and URL values followed by a string. initial and inherit are also available.
