Character limits with Item Details and Tag Parameters

Does anyone know if there is documentation stating the character limits and parameters for each Item Details field? So far I've only found that the Summary field is limited to 150 characters, and the Tags field is limited to 250 characters.

It would be good to know if the Tags limit includes/excludes commas or if there is a limit on the number of allowable tags (as there is for this post). It would also be helpful to know the search parameters for tags. It seems that tag searches only look for complete, not partial, strings. Presumably, tags are read left to right ??? meaning that a tag search will look for a match starting at the beginning of a string, but not elsewhere within it.

For instance, so far as I can tell, a search for the tag ???child??? will yield both ???child??? and ???children???, but a search for the tag ???children??? would only yield ???children??? and not 'child' or ???step-children???. A search for the word ???culture??? would yield ???culture???, ???cultures???, or ???cultured???, but would not yield the word ???agriculture??? or ???monoculture???. A search for the partial string ???ag??? or ???agri??? also would not yield the word ???agriculture???. A search for either the word ???best??? or ???practice??? would not yield the tag ???best practices???, but a search for the term ???best practices??? would yield both ???best??? and ???practice??? tags.

Any help would be appreciated.
