Free Online Word Count & Character Count Tools
from L&R Hartley

If you want to submit a competiton entry limited to a certain number of words, or if you're a webmaster and you've ever needed to submit your link to an online directory or link exchange which limits the number of characters or number of words that you can use for your site description, you surely know what a nuisance it can be to add up words or characters! For that reason, we offer the following "cut and paste" free online word count and character counting tools together on one handy page to help you to quickly determine the number of words and characters contained in any phrase. As this page uses a self-contained javascript, you may rest assured that absolutely nothing is stored on this webpage nor is anything ever sent to anyone, so what you write is absolutely confidential and no longer exists when this webpage is closed.
