News to me, so I check the docs.

Apparently varchar can "easily" hold more than 255 chars IF YOU USE VERSION 
5.0.3 OR LATER.
"Values in VARCHAR columns are variable-length
        strings. The length can be specified as a value from 0 to 255
        before MySQL 5.0.3, and 0 to 65,535 in 5.0.3 and later versions."

We assume the OP is using <form method="post"> if he is checking the $_POST 
variable.  Good catch (OKi98) if he is not.
