I understand that with "resized" you mean an element that is clipped.
Clipping is done in layout, so it should be handled by CSS.
So we need a way to tell the layout engine to treat the content of the element as a single line. This can be done with "whitespace: nowrap".
Then we need a way to tell the layout engine to crop the contents. This cannot be done. We could extend the CSS2 oferflow property with a crop "value":
Beware that cropping is affected by Bidi!
