I have not used word as an html editor but I can tell you where to go and get a counter.  Try http://linux46.dn.net/tracker/  They have a decent web counter.  It not only counts everytime your web page has been hit but it gives you statistics like which operating system are they using, which browser are they using, etc.

After you have done the necessary work to get the counter just add the address (url) to your page just like you did to any other link.  For example on my page the html is:
<A
HREF="http://www.fxweb.holowww.com/v2-openstat.cgi?userid=B55683&password2=public">
<IMG src="http://www.fxweb.holowww.com/v2-trackrun.cgi?userid=B55683"></A>

They will give you your own userid and your own password.  They will also give you a place to just cut the html out and place it in your page.

A hit means every time someone looks at your web page it will increase by one.  So when you install it and then you view it the number will say one.  If you go back it will say two, etc.  

Good luck.  Arlene

Well, the same as above, but another site is:

http://wss5.websidestory.com/wc/create/index.html

It will tell you everything. Also, you really should learn the basics of html, I mean the syntax (command operations and procedure, just the way it is meant to happen (veryeasy)), and what tags mean. You can do this by buying a book, or of the Net.

Anyway, the site above has many graphical counters to choose from, and I used it!
