no it doesnt.
what it does, is limit the length of a subject title.
i would guess that since each quote (") becomes something like ", it's counted as 6 chars rather than 1, so a title containing quotes can not be as long as a title without them.

it's not exactly "counted". what it is, is the size of the field in the database that holds it (or rather, "fields", as it exists both in the post table and in the topic table).
it is simple enough to raise the limit from 60 to prety much anyting you want. to request that the special characters (such as ") will not be converted before stored in the database is not reasonable.

Yea, but dilettantes like me wonder why their topics are cut off then.

[e] The German umlaut "ü" doesn't count as "ü", too ;)

[e] Yea - I know the problems of php with &, " etc.
