Getting rid of the equal sign worked.  I knew I was hitting the limit of the string but didn't understand why.

Thank you both, Michael and Martin.  I checked out ds, and it is a great command.

Generally misleading advice.

The 244 characters limit is only if the string is evaluated using an equals sign 
or stored as a variable.  In this specific case, the string is in a local macro 
and just needs to be handled without any equals signs.
