varchar with a length of 350 - seems to work?

I used the MySQL administrator to setup a table, with a field setup as varchar(350). It didn't give me any errors when I set it up, and used the MySQL Browser to import a data file into that table, which didn't give back any error's either.

I'm not sure if there were any import data fields > 255 in length, but...

Is the length of that field really 255, even though the description of it is set to be varchar(350)? or was it converted to a blob internally?

This is on a windows platform.
