Technical Notes:

  • Uses your computers processing power.
  • Browser window may fade while word count is processing; be patient.
  • After 40K or about 5000 words (6 typed pages) you may receive warning: "Script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slow ... Do you want to abort script?" The abort option is not a fatal error.  You can continue to process, depending on your system resources.
  • Text heavy with symbols like HTML code and mathematical equations may also produce this warning.
  • "Runtime Error" on Line 175 means you did not push the "COUNT WORDS" button first.  You must push it first so all variables are assigned values.  This is not a fatal error.  You can continue to process by pushing "COUNT WORDS".
  • Test the amount of text your system can process by starting with a single page of text and then increasing in increments.
