Subject: [WebAIM] edit field max length
I was having a discussion with a colleague about this and we didn't have a good answer.
Suppose there is an edit field in a web form. The field has a maximum length of 20.
Should there be some indication that the user has reached the maximum length, or that at least there is a maximum length?
If some indication should be provided, what is the best mechanism for the nnotification, and which WCAG 2.1 criteria does it reference?

Accessibility, like security, is better when built-in from the beginning rather than bolted on at the end.
