Thanks, I wasn't aware of those pre-existing functions.

I don't agree with changing '(match-end 0)' to '(match-beginning 2)'
however. For most latex macros, I don't want to count the words inside
the macro's arguments. For example, I don't want the next of footnotes
to be included in the word count. However others differ, and there will
always be cases where one DOES want to count the macro arguments - so maybe
org-word-count should do this optionally.

Paul
