Updating Domino Limits page

One of the most popular pages on this website has nothing to do with rich text; nothing to do with Notes/Exchange coexistence; and nothing to do with Genii Software itself. This is the Domino Limits page, which lists many different limits, either documented or experimentally found, in Lotus Notes and Domino. This is a living document, created from a post by Mike Woolsey of Solutions by Design in the Lotus Business Partner forum. The living part means that people write in and let me know about new limits or modified information, and I try to keep the whole thing up to date. In April I put the list up on our site, and pledged to keep it there, so you can add it as a resource link to your own website or list of useful links. The full URL is DominoLimits and will remain that way for the foreseeable future.
Recent changes include a bunch of additions for the limits on organization names, organizational unit names, common names, server names, etc. etc., the maximum number of documents that can be selected when using the "Archive Selected Documents" menu item, and the maximum length of an ACL entry. Do you have some new entries for us, or some revised information which might help your fellow Notes/Domino developers and administrators? Reply to the Domino Limits blog entry, or write to me at and I'll be happy to verify what I can and add to or modify the list as appropriate. Where possible, I indicate the source for the information, so let me know if there is a Help document or other source or if the information was derived by manual efforts.
