Max number of records processed at once by a trigger?

Can someone point me to documentation that definitively states that an Apex trigger will only process a maximum of 200 (or the correct number) records each run? Regardless of how the trigger was activated, e.g., by a Visualforce action, via the SOAP API, through the Bulk API?

The Triggers page[1] in the Force.com Apex Code Developer's Guide, Version 30.0 seems to imply that triggers will only process a max of 200 records per run. To me, this means that even if I load 1,000,000 records through the Bulk API in one request, that 1,000,000 records will actually be processed in chunks of 200 records.

Thank you for offering suggestions, Ramu. Unfortunately, neither link seems to be "official documentation" on the maximum number of records a trigger may process (outside of the Bulk API). For "official" documentation, I am looking for something from Salesforce Help or from something like the Force.com Apex Code Developer's Guide.
