i have a table with several fields in it. one of the fields is defined in my xsl as below:
<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><font class="small"><xsl:value-of select="DESCRIPTION" /></font></td>
this description can be up to 1000 chars long. i would like to just display the first 40 chars or so in my table. is this possible to do in xsl? i would rather not modify this field in my business or data layer.
thanks - pipe
