In my test file with commented text lines and some \immediate\write16 
{a readable text} it counts 30% too many words. Detex seems to count  
too few words (15%), but subtracting the words in a table it's very  
exact, sometimes (I have to understand its options better!). The  
method with pdftotext counts a few (<10%) too much ...



What’s the difference between OS X and Vista?

Microsoft employees are excited about OS X…
