Firstly, you are printing the output directly, so in case you don't
mark the lines you are printing out after each section, there is no
way to count the lines.

Secondly, "HTML" doesn't "push" the text automatically to anywhere, it
is your text-editor.
HTML is presented as it's written on the file. So if your text-editor
chops the text to multiple lines, then it's no-can-do. Though, usually
text-editors don't add "\n"'s in text, even if they show a long line
chopped to multiple lines in edit-mode.

A solution would be for you to process the HTML to a variable first
and then print it.
This way you can also count the lines by counting the number of "\n"'s.
