How would I limit the amount of html characters printed to a page, so that it only displays say 50?

So if the html generates a 100 characters in a paragraph, how would I limit that to 50 and add a link "more.." to the string?

many thanks.

you can use str.substring(0,50); with out.println (servlet/jsp) or with document.write() [javascript]
