I have a large chunk of text that's currently being used in my template, I want to programmatically split this over too pages.

The text is first put into a textbox onto a page and needs to be restricted to a certain size (8 lines or so). The rest of the text needs to put into a variable or something on the following page.

Not exactly sure how I can implement this since the text overflows the boxes no matter I tend to find in there.
