That link points to an older version of the draft for CSS3-text.
The latest version is here
The only browser that is supposed to support the text-overflow
property (per the older draft, I guess) is Safari 1.3 or 2.0x. I
couldn't get them to work well, though.
As Ingo points out, the MS implementation iis different from what the
css3 draft suggest.
