Done some more tests. The good news is that it seems that browsers can and do 
respect the limits set on the server (php.ini). For example in php.ini I set 
the "post_max_size" to 32M then when I upload a 33M file, the browser has a 
quick word with the server and ascertains that the file is over the limit and 

The bad news is that out of Opera, NN and IE only Opera works properly in 
this respect. NN uploads the file then gives "Network Error: Connection reset 
by peer". IE uploads the file then gives "Cannot find server, page cannot be 
displayed" (!!).

These were quick and dirty tests and should not be taken as gospel.
