Thanks for your reply. 

I'v tried to use the overflow="hidden" property before sending the e-mail to 
the list, with no luck. I was not sure if was doing something wrong, but 
thanks to you I now know that it is not supported by the current FOP 
implementation.

The only solution is the string clipping at the XSLT level, which I'm already 
using.
