Length of Title tag?

I have found a lot of information about Meta Tags and how they are displayed on the search results pages of the major search engines. But I couldn't find anything about how long your page title should be.

I had created a title of 14 words, and the last three words weren't shown on AltaVista.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
