Taie cod HTML fara sa strici tagurile HTML

In cadrul unui proiect recent a trebuit sa dezvolt o functie care sa ia sursa HTMl a unei pagini si sa o sparga in mai multe parti, fara ca sa taie in mijlocul unui tag HTML. Dupa ce m-am chinuit o perioada sa scriu acest cod am decis sa apelez la coderi mai inspirati si sa caut pe google o solutie :D. Dupa o vreme de cautat si incercat diverse coduri am dat de codul de mai jos. Este o metoda dintr-o clasa a cakephp framework si isi face treaba perfect.

Sper sa aveti noroc si daca cautati acesta functie sa gasiti acest articol si sa salvati niste timp.
* Truncates text.
* Cuts a string to the length of $length and replaces the last characters
* with the ending if the text is longer than length.
* @param string $text String to truncate.
* @param integer $length Length of returned string, including ellipsis.
* @param string $ending Ending to be appended to the trimmed string.
* @param boolean $exact If false, $text will not be cut mid-word
* @param boolean $considerHtml If true, HTML tags would be handled correctly
* @return string Trimmed string.
