Word Count plugin

The Word Count plugin adds the functionality for counting words to the TinyMCE editor by placing a counter on the right edge of the status bar. Clicking Word Count in the status bar switches between counting words and characters. A dialog box with both word and character counts can be opened using the menu item situated in the Tools drop-down, or the toolbar button.
