Signature character limit

When editing your signature it says that max character limit is 255.
But I've got this message above: Your signature is too long.

So I've copied the whole text from the box, into Word and pressed "Word count".
It said that there are 215 characters including spaces. Just in case I've counted my self again. :lol:

So what is the problem?

Now it's 208 and it's OK. I'm very confused. :?
