              html, body { margin: 0; padding: 0; font-family: sans-serif;}

.prop, .main, .end {
  opacity: 0.7;
.wrap {
	width: 400px; height: 200px;
	margin: 20px 20px 50px;
	border: 5px solid #AAA;
	line-height: 25px; 

.prop {
	float: left;
	width: 100px; height: 200px; 
	background: #FAF; }
.main {
	float: right;
	width: 300px; 
	background: #AFF; }
.end {
	float: right; position: relative;
	width: 100px;
	background: #FFA; }
.realend {

              // Now, let's flip the scenario and make this work properly - show the ellipsis element when the content is too long for the container. For demonstration reasons, we will create a new "realend" element within "end". The location of "realend" is defined relative to that of "end", so that when "end" is trapped in the corner, "realend" lands on the bottom right, and when "end" is free, "realend" is out of bounds.

// This is beginning to look like a proper text-overflow implementation, but all its plumbing is exposed and widths are fixed.
