Is there some specification that describes how long certain HTTP header
fields should be? I browsed through a couple of the RFCs and saw desciptions
for the format of fields and which characters were/were not valid, but
didn't notice anything about length.
Is there, for example, a suggested limit on the number of characters that
can be included in the Content-Type: header field?
