The truncatewords filter is not HTML-aware, which means that when it's used to clip out part of a block of HTML text (say, for purposes of providing an excerpt), it can cut off at text in the middle of a tag. This will, usually, invalidate the HTML and can easily cause severe layout problems.
Perhaps an alternative filter could be added which is HTML-safe?
