Sorry I am not sure I follow what you are saying.
I want the output text length to be limited not the tags.

Well if I can limit the number of characters it is easier to display.
for example if I do not want a table to have more than 50 chars then I could
truncate them, but I only want to truncate characters that will be
not the html tags that are not displayed.

In my example given I want to limit to 10 the number of characters
but not the tags should be excluded.

$text = "<a href='somelonnnnnnngg'>this is a </a>";
