Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45777] header overflow
Date Thu, 04 Jun 2009 03:57:05 GMT

This bug was probably mis-diagnosed.  Excel handles header / footer text longer
than 256 bytes, and none of the documentation mentions this limit.

Prior to the introduction of StandardRecord (and LittleEndian input/output
refactoring of the BIFF serialization) this code was much more fragile.  It's
likely that the original bug was fixed through all that work.

As of the fix for bug 47244, POI now allows header / footer text much longer
than 256 bytes.  POI enforces a limit of 8221 bytes.  I am not sure if this is
the absolute max, but it avoids the need for BIFF record continuation logic.
