Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera all support the textLength DOM attribute
on <textarea>. Sites rely on it as well as far as I know.

Newlines are counted differently in browsers. Have not checked whether it
counts 16-bit units, actual characters, etc. Also not sure whether any of these
details matter, but long term it would be good if they were clear.
