What are the string sizes (i.e. 'small string')

Hello,

I cannot seem to find in the documentation the definition of the string sizes as to what their maximum values:
small string
medium string
large string

Could you provide a link to the documentation where this is defined or provide the answer to the question on the string sizes?

Thanks,
Steve

I think we don't have doc on this yet. Here are the sizes:

small string: 250 bytes
medium string: 1000 bytes
large string: 32768 bytes

Keep in mind that strings are stored UTF-8 encoded, so 250 bytes doesn't
mean that you can store 250 characters. E.g. for Kanji text, you may be
able to store only less than 100 characters in 250 bytes.
