    The best way to do what you want to do is probably to do the work
    count server side, but if you really want to use what javascript
    produced you can create a hidden input with a specified id, and use
    dhtml via javascript to modify the input and insert the value into
    the value field of the hidden input. Then it will get sent to the
    server when the user hits the post button.

    However, since you should be validating any user input server side,
    you'll need to validate that the variable is accurate - might as
    well just do the count with php server side.

Thanks Michael I was kind of moving in the right direction as far as the hidden input goes, going to have to google on how to do it with the dhtml and all like you suggested.

Look at the various DOM functions - IE for

<input type="hidden" name="wordcount" id="hiddenStudd" value="">

you coud do in your js:

var myHidden = document.getElementById('hiddenStuff');
