Thanks for the suggestion, Bastien.

I'm thinking now that when the org-protocol is invoked on Win XP via the capture javascript code that  it's essentially the same as calling a windows command line. The Windows XP command line has an upper limit of 8192 characters. You can reach that fast because every space character gets translated into 3 url characters. This limits the ability of the nifty capture technology which is a shame. I imagine the work-around would require some sort of plug-in for FireFox.

The command line limits for Linux are much higher, so people using org-mode on those platforms would rarely encounter the barrier.

I guess there's not that many people using org-mode on Windows, if I'm the only one noticing this problem. Oh well, cutting and pasting isn't that tedious.

 There is no limit on Org-mode side, so I guess it's a limit
 from the
 browser protocol.  I'd search in this direction.
