Size of Isaiah?

Microsoft Word 97. But I had to do some fiddling with the text first 
to remove chapter and verse markers. I was working with a 
transliteration of BHS. One could do the same with the CCAT text but 
one might have to replace the punctuation marks used in the text by 
letters (any letters!) for the count to come out right. By the way, 
there is a possible small error in that words with Ketiv and Qere 
variants may be double counted.

Sounds like you have an excellent computer program.  Which one is it that enable
d you
to find the number of words in Isaiah?
