Since there is a limitation regarding to InnoDB key (prefix) length, which it may have up to 767 bytes long, it is documented in the CREATE TABLE syntax page:

However, this is not documented on the InnoDB restrictions page:

That limitation should be documented on the latter page as well.

How to repeat:
See the pages above.
