maxlength is only valid for text instances, not textarea ones. The DTD of datacapture documents says so. Limiting the size can be done with a nice little regulare expressio. For example, limiting to 300 characters requires the following regular expression:

<textarea validation-regex="^.{0,300}$" required="t" rows="10" cols="90" wrap="virtual" />
