    I would just use javascript (if IE only you could make a behavior to control it). Just check textareaname.length in Javascript.<BR><BR>Hope I helped<BR><BR>Nathan Pond<BR><BR>btw... I don&#039t think there is a tag for it, especially if MAXLENGTH doesn&#039t work.

    This is how you can do it in VBScript... this won&#039t help you if you need it to be compatible in other browsers. The "FORM" equals the name of your form and "FIELD" equals the name of the textarea field:<BR><BR>function document_onkeyup<BR> x=len(FORM.FIELD.value)<BR> if x>250 then<BR> FORM.FIELD.value=mid(FORM.FIELD.value,1,250) end if<BR>end function
