I have been translating with Transit for over a year now - first with Transit XV and now with NXT, working mainly with heavily tagged documents. Lately I have noticed something very troubling with the word count feature: If a tag appears in the text directly after the word, without a space between the word and the tag and after the tag there is another word, again without spaces, ie word1TAGword2, Transit considers these two words as one, and counts them as one! I guess the reason is that a tag is actually no space. This results is a Transit count which is much lower than the actual word count.

Has anybody noticed this before? Is there a setting to change in order to correct this?
