String Tag library
Tag truncateNicely


A more intelligent substring. It attempts to cut off a string after a space, following predefined or user-supplied lower and upper limits, useful for making short descriptions from long text. It strips the HTML out as a part of the code. Patches on a version which doesn't strip the HTML will be gratefully received.

Example:
Will output: '<The quick brown...>' &lt;<str:truncateNicely lower="13" upper="20">The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.</str:truncateNicely>
