Thanks Eric

That I know I can do.
What I'm looking for is a way to truncate the length at a certain number of characters or lines.
That way I can make certain it doesn't look as if the dialog just runs off.
Using overflow:hidden it is possible that if the heading wraps to two or three lines that the text in the short description could be partially obscured by the edge of the div. And I would have to write all my short descriptions to fit in the allotted space, which could change with a redesign.
I remember reading about using a PHP script that could identify the end of a word and add an ellipsis to indicate…

No awkward words cut in half or lines of text blocked by the edge of the div.
