100 words should not be a hard concept. I mastered counting to 100 at least a decade ago. Yet, I have absolutely no idea whether any of my "100 words" contain 100 words.
WordPress claims they're all exactly 100 words long (not by intention, honestly). Word disagrees, claiming routine overshooting. It really isn't that simple.
After all, should 100 be one word? And what about &? Is two-fold one, or two? These are not questions I expected to be asking, but I'm enjoying their idiosyncrasies (so far).
For now, I've decided that WordPress is the word count that actually counts. If you see what I mean...
Update 12/05/20: Out of interest, Craft CMS places the original word count of this post at 106. Woops!
