Please add dynamic character counts in all listing fields

Would you please add dynamic character counts in all listing fields? I get errors for having too many characters in description fields after saving, but it would be great to see the character count dynamically so I know who far over I am. This way, I can more easily decide what text to cut to meet the requirement.

This isn't as simple as it sounds though, because the character counts that actually matter are *not* the characters you can see and count by hand. Depending on the field, if you're setting any formatting or special characters, there are hidden characters you can't see behind the scenes that add to the count.

Maybe give the option to see the HTML code, and put the character counter on that.
