Hi Experts!

It is possible to limit the textarea lenght in the same http line in which the textarea is defined (without calling a JS function)?

I am using this:

<textarea name="Customer_Comment" cols="109" rows="15" id="textarea" onkeyup='this.value=this.value.substring(0,1000);'></textarea>

with the event KEYUP, and works fine... but the problem is that is impossible to modify entered text :...(

Thanks in advance,

Pablo.
