255? Where did you get this information? Take a look at

WWW FAQ
Support MS

It looks that 2048 is considered the maximum (at least as enforced by IE).

Hi,

It used to be 255 characters but that was along time ago (several years at least). I have no idea what it is now or even if there truly is a universal upper limit.

Hi Rohan!
Sorry! Accidentally pressed Add to reply button! Follow this
[URL=]http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q208427[/URL]
and also
The Internet Explorer versions 5 and 6 that I tested only allowed up to 2,047 characters while Netscape Navigator version 4 seemed to be able to handle up to 30,000 and I couldn't get version 6 much past 9,000.
Before you start thinking that 2,047 is a lot, it's not like you can go ahead and use all of those characters. That limit is even less once you deduct the address of your site, the path to the requested file, and even the requested file name.




Hope this will help U!
Regards,
Prathibha
