FW: Re: maximum number of values in a multivalue field


Your suggestion is good.  I do not WANT to put many values in an
attribute (if avoidable).  I am just wondering (given some of
the schemas that I MAY have to use) what is the MAXIMUM number
of values I can have in a multivalued attribute?  If the
attribute acts flaky (at some earlier threshold) I would also
like to know- what is the biggest number of values a multivalues
attribute can have and still have "correct" behavior.
