I have looked at other examples that kond of relate to my problem, but not being as proficient as most, any help would be appreciated. All i want to do is return the first 10 characters of $Content. But I want to do it with NO html included. This way I can style from insode the page.ss. Also, because i am truncating the text, i am getting only an opening html tag which screwing up the code. I have seen a ticket for this but not sure what it means!! I have tried the NoHtml.LimitCharacters(10) suggested in the ticket, but it does not work.

Thanks in advance. Code below.

Page.php>>>

function getGetToKnow() {
return DataObject::get_one('GetToKnowPage', '', false, 'LastEdited DESC');
}

Page.ss>>>>

<% control GetToKnow %>
      <div>
      <span style="float:left; position:relative;">$Photo.SetWidth(50)</span>
      <h6><a href="$Link">$Title</a></h6>
      $Content.LimitCharacters(10)
      </div>
<% end_control %>

Looks like it's exactly what you're aiming at
