When entering (was: comments) footnotes in the box here below, it comes a time when the space is over and no more characters are accepted.
This may suggest that the comments area is fixed in length.
So far so good. However, when submitting we get an error of the comments area exceeding 200 chars. Strange, since the interface itself prevented any more chars to be entered.
By deleting only one char the abstract is accepted. This suggests that Indico is not counting the number of characters entered correctly.
