limit text field entry by character/word count

My client has a two column printing job - merge field. Entries are made in a text field that enforces a font, but no longer a size as well, because I am allowing them to resize the 'clear' lines between paragraphs in order to do some formatting. They want an alert to tell them when they have reached the maximum amount of text for the merge field, but with the 'clear lines' between paragraphs, the character counts cannot be counted on, and the word counts are pretty undependable too.


Any suggestions for tamping down parameters a bit better for them?


Thank you,
