i know you can't have a 'maxlength' on a text area... and yes, we 
are going to do a check server-side for people without JS enabled...

but for usability purposes, anyone have any JS handy that can tell 
the user that he/she has exceeded, say, 255 characters in a 
textarea with a JS alert?  for IE and NN 4+?  if not, then IE4+?
