This plugin

Two things. Should be simple to the trained eye. I would like to add a smooth animation to its open and close. And two can you see why it adds two characters to any given word it cuts short when it shows the remainder of the text?

I would just use expander plugin but when it shows more of the text it does it with inline-block so the remander of the text drops down on the next line a if a br was inserted. Maybe I was doing that wrong somehow. But could not see why.
