RTE markup making entries too long

I propose an addition to FAQ 165. I'd like to add this after the first sentence, and start a new paragraph after it.

If there are HTML markup tags in your entry, the markup counts toward this limit. If you paste an entry from an external text editor such as Microsoft Word into the Rich Text version of LiveJournal's update page, the editor will automatically insert markup to preserve the formatting. Depending on how the post was formatted originally, this could require a great deal of markup and bring your post over the size limit. To avoid this, you can switch to HTML mode before you paste the entry, or switch to it afterward to edit the markup.
