I think the problem lies not only with the HTML but with HTTP.
I seem to remember some limits on the size of 'GET', so you want to make sure you are doing 'POST'.
In any case maybe it's time to look into pagenation and session state on the server side if for no other
reason than user friendliness. JMHO.

  Subject: Maximum number of fields for an HTML form?


  I've run into a problem with the number of fields in a form I'm dynamically producing.  There's a list of elements, each with a checkbox next to them.the checkboxes are sot he user can check the elements they would like to export to a file.if the user selects more than 100 or the list produced is longer than 100 and they choose to export all of them.the form will not submit.  Is this a known fact that you cannot have more than 100 elements to a form?

   

  Any help is greatly appreciated.
