Maximum number of Clip Shapes
Barry Bentley posted the following bit of trivia on the V8 General newsgroup:

"You can have up to 200 clip shapes (if one is used for the boundary, the other 199 can be used for clip masks). They can total up to 2500 points.

A clip rectangle takes 5 points, because the first and last point is the same. One point is used to separate each void, too. That compares to a total of 101 vertices in MS/J and earlier versions."
