could you perhaps save the contents directly into a file, then read the file
into the database?

I know for a fact ( that you can use
a textarea to pump more info than that into a file, but haven't tried doing
it straight into a database.

// However, when I attempted to send  a 393 word (2,216 
// characters) text block,
// the browser (I.E. 6) refused to move.  I got no error or 
// other indication of
// trouble.  When I cut the text down under 275 words (1,531 
// characters), the
// form was allowed to be submitted, stored and retrievable
// Is this the limit on passing textarea form fields?
// And more to point of this mailing list, what alternatives 
// might I use to
// circumvent this limit?
// I need to keep the creation of these documents as simple as possible.
// Anything more than copying and pasting is going to cause
