Handling long titles and special characters in the DSR, CDM and RDR-R standards
Receiving a message with, say, a sound recording title that exceeds the field length restrictions in a recipient’s systems, can be problematic.
However, a recipient’s system limitations should not force the sender of the message to such a recipient to shorten the content of the string. It is up to the recipient of the message to carry out such shortening to meet the limitations of their own system(s).
The same general rule applies to the handling of special characters, such as glyphs from various languages using non-Roman characters supported by UTF-8. It is up to the recipient of the message to transliterate special character strings if their system cannot handle them.
