I'd say a blob of text subtype. You'll notice that varchar (n) puts a
rather arbitrary limit on whatever you're using. You will, however,
need to use the appropriate APIs to get stuff out of it - if you're
using PHP, look at the PHP documentation, if you're using Python, look
at the kinterbasdb documentation.
