php is server side.
To use something client side in a server side script, the web page
has to send it to the server from the client.
The best way to do what you want to do is probably to do the work
produced you can create a hidden input with a specified id, and use
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');
