That's stilll the simplest and best way, in my humble opinion, Harry!

Dunno. <> has always seemed like a bleeping waste of time to me. We're
writers, not clerks. We ought to remember where we are in a document w/o
having the computer do our counting for us.

I don't see why that wouldn't work. I have done precisely that in order to
renumber a file containing the author's end notes when the author has added
several. I just plug em in where they belong and give them a value of 0. Then
run the count program.

Same for the cite references in the text.
