for standard text input use

<input name="textfield" type="text" size="10" maxlength="10">  that will only allow 10 

not sure if that will also work for text area's

Subject: [PHP] Limiting text inputs by character count?

Is there a way to limit the number of characters that may be inputed into:
        a) a <input type=text . . . > input
        b) a <textarea . . . > input

I would like to control the maximum number of characters for each of these 

Any suggestions of where to look, or how to do it, if it's possible, would be 
greatly appreciated.


Please pray the Holy Rosary to end the holocaust of abortion.
Remember in your prayers the Holy Souls in Purgatory.

May God bless you abundantly in His love!
