 **Maximum Value Size**
 
-The maximum size of an extended attribute value? I don't know. The Internet says anywhere from 3802 bytes to 128 KB. So the standard disclaimers apply: _Your mileage may vary. Void where prohibited. Do not operate heavy machinery._
+The maximum size of an extended attribute value? I'm not sure, but I believe it is a function of the node size in the HFS+ catalog or attributes tree. The Internet says anywhere from 3802 bytes to 128 KB. So the standard disclaimers apply: _Your mileage may vary. Void where prohibited. Do not operate heavy machinery._
