How do I count how many characters in a long string?  I want to use this:

myLongSting.Substring(1, 200) + "<a href='#'>...Details</a>";

But I get an error if there are less than 200 characters in my string.  I assume the correct way to do this is to first count the characters and then apply the above if/else it is applicalbe.
