I use a table widget to display daily stand-up reports for project management. I think that it would be great if there were an option to make the ellipsis used to signify truncated text links that will open up the entire text as a modal dialog so that it can be read.
So, just to clarify, if you had some text like:
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy...
The "..." would be a link that would display the entire text.
