The difference in the behaviour of browser interpratation might only be on
Style sheet/CSS file. So the improperness might be of PHP. So better trace
the 'insert' or check the method. If it is GET method, sure the length is
a constraint and there may be chance for data to get eliminated if the
length exceeds 256 chars.
The best solution is trace the parameter values, whether they are
interpreted as it is.
