So are we going to display the overflow in any capacity? Because that was the whole point.

I guess I don't know. But imo if we want to show all the text we should wrap it instead of using a title tag and if we don't need to show it we should use the "text-overflow: ellipsis".

The styles you suggest are a good way to go.

Maybe people do want to wrap, but if they don't then we have to revisit scrolling which we won't, or we need to figure out the best substitute for the title tag (which admittedly isn't my first choice). This alternative is likely an overlaying element. The key how to detect that there is overflow. Do you know how with DOM or jQuery or whatever to detect that the element has overflow?

Go to HLF.net, see the chat from IRC, see the word beer, listen to people talking about beer, next day you end up with this:

my CS:S reference was too obscure, how sad


I got it. Not obscure enough for me. *smug face*

Now back to hacking...

raging bitch, the first one tares your throat clean off, by the 3rd they taste pretty good



As for overflow, if you add it, you take away additional lines, one single text could eat up the whole box. I do like the mouse over that shows the entire text, that is awesome in my opinion, you get best of both worlds.

I would love to see a background image or something decorative.

You can show the text on hover by putting a style like ".msg:hover { overflow: visible;}". Basically the .msg would switch from ellipsis to wrapped text on hover. But if you like the title text view the script is the way to go. I'll still do a write up later for comparison because I'm sure everyone is thrilled by this.

Got it from the liquor store around the corner, I think the raging bitch was the best of those 3 beers. There were like 50 more to choose from, gotta try them all some day, love the bitterness.

I am outraged that my name is cut off in the IRC box.

Just kidding, I don't care and it's a smart move.

That reminds me to start working towards 100 unique beers on my untapped account. Whenever I have the chance I'll go for something other than just a pilsner.
