              // It would be cumbersome to resize "prop" every time the size of "realend" ellipsis content changes. Instead, we shrink "prop" and prevent it from wasting space through the use of negative margins. Note how the negative margin trick on "realend" allows it to fit into 5 pixels of "prop"-held space.
