Use this form to count total characters. Just copy your text then paste in the box. This tool is handy for making email signatures especially if your sig box's capacity is limited. It's also useful for web page design. For optimal loading time and performance, WebTV users' pages should be no bigger than 30k – that includes all characters used, plain text and HTML markup.
To refresh the memory: One character is equal to one byte. A kilobyte is roughly 1000 bytes, or 1000 characters. Example: If the counter shows 2500 characters, that is roughly 2.5 kilobytes.
