Limit to extra fields

I've seen it discussed before, but I can't find it....

Does anyone remember what the character limit is for the extra fields in an article (particularly author the one I'm trying to figure out now)?

There's no practical limit except for Author which is 254 characters.

And Author is prefilled with whatever the previous edit to the Author field of the last edited article is.. Makes sense...

The extra fields are defined in Access. Launch Access and open a .cty file, and check the table structures.
