How to count the number of characters of a post?

I'd like to know the number of characters of the first post of each page. It's possible to do this?

For example:

If "number of characters" > 5000

"do option1!


"do option 2"

End if

Hello Force,

It's for showing diferent ads. One larger ads if the text is larger than X characters, and one sorter ad if the text is shorter than X characters.

Do you know how to do this?

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Thanks very much, Lynne.

I can do some little things with PHP, but I don't know how to do a plugin.

It could function this?:

<vb:if condition="strlen ($message)"> 5000

"show ad 1"


<vb:if condition="strlen ($message)"<= 5000

"show ad 2"
