I use the standard hitCounter that comes with FrontPage98
In the hit counter properties you can select "custom image"
and the filename of a gif-file. I have read that I can
make this gif file myself and that it has to contain the
following numbers "0123456789".
I did:
-Created a bmp-file in Paint and added the numbers as one
text string.
-Then I opened the file in MS Photoshop and saved the file
as a gif-file.
-Then I updated the hitcounter with the custom file-name.

When I use this file..the only things that shows up
is a blue spot...but no numbers!!!!!!??????

Any suggestions.

Is the page running on a server or a local workstation? Is the custom image added to the frontpage web? And was it uploaded to the site? If you just place the image on a web page (not via a counter) does it display properly?

Does a standard (non custom) hit counter display properly on the page?

Any GIF image will do nicely.   The image will need the digits 0-9 in left to right order. The image should be able to be devided by 10 pixels as Frontpage will read the first 10% as 0 the second 10% as 1 etc. Beyond this it can be any size you want.

And for a site with lots of counters already created: http://www.digitmania.holowww.com/
