I am using 6.5 on windows 2008 with mysql 5.0.45. When entering data to the long or short description I cannot enter any data to the database. Here is a sample of the data from the html editor that I am trying to enter. If I go to the mysql admin and do an update or insert the data will show until I try to update within the cart and it deletes the data.

"<p>2m Tanning Booth<br />
Contact our Sales Department at 111-111-1111 for pricing. <br />
<p>The elegant 2m™ gives the salon owner the opportunity for premium vertical tanning. The 50 lamp, 79” long Rave™ 180 APR lamps produce an excellent, all over tan in a 9 minute session. The overall height of the unit is 95", able to tan your tallest customers. Additionally, 29 cooling fans exhaust the heat and bathe your customers in a whirlwind of air.

The character count is generally limited to 2000. If you paste your description on MS Word and do a character count, you get 2342. mysql doesn't truncate it - it just ignores it!
Two solutions:
1) edit all descriptions to be less than 2000 characters (including spaces).
2) have someone with permissions on the mysql database to increase the size of the 'short description' character limit.
