This is a text-based counter script that performs two functions. It increases the count by one, and then prints the new count to the page. If the ShowIP feature is enabled in the script, then the page visitor's IP will likewise be displayed. You can make the counter output appear in any font face, size, or color; just use font tags around the SSI include. If you don't want the counter visible on the page, make the color in those font tags the same as the background color of the page.
