I'm using this web page upload script code (below) - that works well. It would be more convenient for the user if I could add some type of character counter in the text area of this form, telling the user how many characters until he's reach his limit (250 characters).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

<form name="form_upload" action="upload1.php" method="post">
<div id="uploadvideo1"><br /><br />
<li style="width:240px; text-align:right;">[var.lang_title]:</li>
<li style="width:400px; text-align:left;"><input name="title" type="text" class="upload-video-form-input" value="[var.title]" size="38" />
<li style="width:240px; text-align:right;">[var.lang_description]:<br />(250 characters max.)</li>
<li style="width:400px; text-align:left;"><textarea rows="4" name="description" cols="29" class="upload-video-form-input">[var.description]</textarea>

<li style="width:240px; text-align:right;">Search Tags:</li>
<li style="width:400px; text-align:left;"><input name="tags" type="text" class="upload-video-form-input" value="[var.tags]" size="38" />

<li style="width:240px; text-align:right;"></li>
<li style="width:400px; text-align:left;">
<input type="hidden" name="channel" value="SINGLECHANNEL"/></li></ul>
<input class="upload-video-form-input" type="hidden" name="form_submitted" value="yes" />
