Try using some CAT tool. Feb 29, 2008

e.g. WordFast, which can analyse sets of files and produces statistics "with spaces". BTW, try PlusTools (it is free) -- there are many features to analyse texts... OR try http://www.translate.com/technology/tools/index.html they say they have a tool to prepare sets of files for a project.

Hi Wolfgang,
It works if you remove the period at the end of the link. Otherwise it links to a different page.

I agree with Sergei, to use a CAT tool, but to use Wordfast you first have to convert the pages, and if you have many, many pages, it can take long. If you have OmegaT, though, you can simply copy all your HTML files (including subdirectories) into the /source/ folder, and hit "reload". The word count will instantly appear in the /omegat/ folder, in the statistics file.

follow-up Feb 29, 2008

Samuel is quite right. A good tool is PlusTools (from the the WorFast site), which is free and stand alone. It can be used to tag, analyse, aight, and pretranslate texts and sets.
