Hi David,

Thanks very much for your help. I have transmitted your observations to the
author and it has already modified what has been able to.

Thanks again,

| They seem to use Javascript to insert the counter, so it won't work
| with Lynx, or for secure users - their trick is to use an external
| script file as the insertion.  You could probably try similar tricks
| with style sheets - this won't work with Lynx; the simplest way won't
| work with IE; and the counter will not be semantic content, so will
| only be there in the rendering.  The script trick will not count
| non-scripting accesses.
| They also get the sample HTML fragment wrong, as they fail to encode the
| &'s in the href parameter!  (The source of their instructions page should
| include &amp;amp;cl= etc, because one level of processing will happen when
| the sample is displayed, and one level when the sample is used in anger.)
