http://home.clear.net.nz/pages/kiwit...kiwitechnz.htm

I cut & pasted the code from the clear.net website for the counter, but it
shows up as a "x"

Here is the code... (cut from the website) <td><img width=56 height=48
src=counter.ctr align=absmiddle v:shapes="_x0000_s1042"></td>

If I view the counter.ctr file it shows the counter and with the correct
numbers...just doesn't show on the page??

Try putting quotes around the src filename, ie src="counter.ctr"

the x is the image not available icon, meaning no counter.

Do you need some server side code/config for this counter?

It worked when I used this HTML. If it doesn't work with quotes, you may
need to use an absolute address, as used below:

<HTML>
<TITLE>Test</TITLE>
<BODY>
<IMG SRC="http://home.clear.net.nz/pages/kiwitechnz/counter.ctr">
</BODY>
</HTML>

Speaking of which, make sure the page validates properly:
http://validator.w3.org/

Using invalid code might work on some browsers some of the time but the
results will be less than consistent as each browser will have to guess
what you mean.

Don't lazily rely on the error tolerance of browsers. Valid markup should
have more future proofing than invalid markup as browser bugs get fixed.

Good idea, but I think if he is using Word2000 it is probably out the
window already
