Not at the moment. The "overflow" property normally controls this
behaviour. The problem is that it's not implement at the moment. I need
that, too. This is one of the problems I will need to solve within the
next 4 weeks. Maybe you check back later if your time doesn't run out.

Theoretically, you would do that using overflow="hidden".
