    Overflowing text limitation?

    Hopefully this is a quick thing...

    If there is a block of text inside a div tag that is set to height:0 and overflow:visible, is it possible to limit the number of lines the text wraps to, when a window is resized.

    hopefully that made sense. I tried adding a max-height on the p tag, but that didn't do it. I tried another div that is limited, but that didn't work.

    Might be another, better way to do this. I was just hoping I could do it with the parent div at height:0, for layout purposes.

    have you tried adding a max-height alongside the height on the parent div? Possibly also then get rid of the overflow:visible.
