Smartly truncate long text and markup with jquery.truncator

If you’re in a need for a nice jQuery plugin which can truncate a long piece of text or complex markup equally well, and you need some fine control over how those more/less links look, and perhaps you want to remove markup in preview mode the YouTube way… look no further, for we have a freshly updated fork of Henrik Nyh’s excellent jquery.truncator.js.

Check out the live demo for what it can do.
