Is there a way to have a maximum number of characters for a textarea tag?  I am creating a web-based order entry interface to a system that can only allow up to 600 characters for Order Notes.  I want something like this:

<textarea name="OrderNotes" rows="4" cols="60" maxcharacters="600"></textarea>

Any suggestions on how to do this?  Thanks, sulzener
