In New HTML Document one cannot check number of words in text, either directly typed or pasted into document. It worked in OpenOffice.org few years ago.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create New HTML Document
2. Select Tools | Word counter
3. Click Word Counter without any effect.
Clicking opens a window with statistics, like in normal text document.
Operating System: Linux (Other)
NOT confirmed in Version 126.96.36.199.beta1+ (Build ID: 6d4a55bf38a1c470c49f904dbbddf94eb2f6154)
Win7 - 64bits.
The popup screen with stats is ok.
Reproducible on LibreOffice 3.5:build-403 (openSUSE 12.2).
Not reproducible on 4.0 beta 1 (Windows 8).
Not reproducible on master (188.8.131.52.alpha0+ (Build ID: 3b87d3dd507cd48286160e62383f48e2f70f006) (Linux, self-built).
=> therefore closing as WORKSFORME (now).
