I've given him directions for changing to PLAIN TEXT and
asked him to try that. I'll post results when I hear.
I've tried Microsoft Edge here (don't have IE), and it seems
to work in HTML, Markdown, and Plain Text, although I DID
notice that the HTML mode counts words, but only seems
to update the count when typing pauses for a second or so.
Maybe on IE it doesn't wait for the pause and is counting
words between every keystroke?
