	[DJW:]  
	I suspect what you need is this.
	<http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms/datatypes.html#facet-maxLength> 
	[DJW:]  
	My guess is, given the development of 
	xforms, there will be no changes to the XHTML specs in this 
	area.

	However, you are still going to have to validate server side,
	as the client is not under your control.  Most people would
	use scripting for client side validation as well (but you
	mustn't rely on this).
