comment Is “chars” a universally understandable abbreviation for “characters”?
Okay. I still think Twitter's pattern probably isn't useful here as on Twitter everything's about those 140 chars. If that's true for your form, okay. Otherwise, I'd stay away from it. Say 75% of users reach the limit once while using the form, many still won't reach it even 25% of the time. Why make them think about the limit when they just want to enter their title? Obviously I'm operating with made-up numbers here, but the overall argument still stands. Can you tell us a bit more about the use of the form? Is it a forum post form? Application form?

comment Is a language switcher necessary on a web site's every page?
Thanks. By the way, if you have more than two languages, you could still use a clean text link called "Languages" that shows a dropdown or such on hover. I'm not really sure about integrating such a language switcher into the main nav though, that's quite a central placement.
