Usage:

           event: 'click', // for future extensibility to allow other events
           onExpose: function(){}, // a function to be run once the element is exposed
           onConstrain: function(){}, // a function to be run once the element is constrained
           restrict: {type: 'words', limit: 6}, // type can be 'words' or 'chars' or unicode
           showControl: {string: '[ + ]', title: 'Show More', addclass: 'cmShowHide'}, // element shown to expose
           hideControl: {string: '[ - ]', title: 'Show Less', addclass: 'cmShowHide'}, // element shown to constrain
           trailingString: '...' // string to show at end of truncated text
           });

Methods:

   $('.cmTextElement').cmtextconstrain('destroy'); // destroy the instance of cmtextconstrain
