Limitations on Rich Text formatting

For SharePoint libraries, the maximum length of text fields is typically limited to 255 characters, including markup. It is almost impossible to fit meaningful HTML in 255 characters. In some cases, a warning displays if the length is exceeded but it is not always detected. This may result in truncation or loss of formatting when uploaded to SharePoint.

There is also a known issue with the background color occasionally being lost after editing. This can show in two ways: either the editor does not show the background color when first loaded, or it is lost after uploading to SharePoint.
