How do I show only the leftmost 500 characters of a field in a pageBlockTable?

This is the line I'm trying to fix:
<apex:column headerValue="Status" headerClass="headerStyle" value="{!con.Status__c}" />

This doesn't work:
<apex:column headerValue="Status" headerClass="headerStyle" value="{!LEFT(con.Status__c,500)}" />

this might help:
<apex:column headerValue="Status" headerClass="headerStyle">
    <apex:outputText value="{!LEFT(con.Status__c,500)}"/>

FearNone, I got the following error: "Syntax error. Missing ')'"

Any ideas?
the code I provide is syntax okay. that error is somewhere else.
