I wanted to use GET rather than POST method so that users could bookmark
the results of the form -- it is essentially a search engine for a MySQL
database. The form has built-in limits to how long the inputs can be,
and in fact most of the inputs are really <select> listboxes and not
text-style inputs, so I'm not really worried about having TOO many
characters -- but it could get over 255, which is exactly the number
that I thought I had read was a maximum.
Thanks for the reply, Darren. 2048 seems like a workable limit to me.
But I'm curious about your suggestion -- how would I get the user
inputted data into hidden form variables without submitting the form in
the first place?
