Thank you Sonja Feb 17, 2004

Thanks for the link to CatsCradle. I am fairly new to counting words for websites. Does CatsCradle require HTML files to be saved onto the hard disk or can it work straight from the the relevant internet page?

Kind regards,
Saskia

Just double check your count with a second program. I used Abacus and got 0 word count for a few test HTML pages.

You must download before you can count Feb 18, 2004

If you run *any* word counting software from your hard disk, you can only count HTML files that have been downloaded to your hard disk. There is no possible way a local program can count the words of a page that hasn't been downloaded.

The only way you can count the words on an HTML page without downloading it first, is to use an on-line counting facility (and I don't know where to find one).

So... yes, you have to download the HTML pages.

save web page in a special way Feb 19, 2004

I have tried to use CatsCradle, but I couldn't open the web page that I just saved on my hard disk. Do I have to save the page in a special way?

Just found out I can't save the site under a name in cyrillic...
