It is claimed that blog posts are limited to between 5 and 8000 characters. Apparently titles have some length limit also which seems not to be documented anywhere. If the title is an invalid length, supposedly the error message claims the blog length is invalid.
test pl 0: title left empty.
Result: It previews without reporting any error. Post fails with the error message:
"This blog subject is not valid. It should contain between 3 and 50 characters."
Good news -- there is a specific error message for bad title length
Probable bad news -- apparently the post content is likely to be lost if an error occurs
test pl 1: 4 char title posts ok
test pl 2: 3 char title posts ok
test pl 3: 2 char title -- reports the same error as an empty title

Agreed SonLight, that has been my experience as well.
Can't you just hit the Back button in the browser to get the content back?
That is why I always 'copy' anything of length before I submit. Can 'paste' later.
So do I Stand. The back button works most of the time, but in some cases it won't work. If I remember correctly it didn't work with the blog situation that SonLight experimented with. Sort of went "poof" gone. But that was a while ago. So whenever I have something of size to post, I do the same. I copy it first.
