This function obtains a count of the number of characters present within the EditLive! applet. It counts the number of characters which are contained within controls on the current view.
Prior to version 8.1 this function had no return value and the function was asynchronous. While asynchronous use is still supported, since version 8.1 this function can now be used synchronously with a return value.
This parameter is optional.

Note: this is the number of characters in the actual text of the document, not the number of characters in the HTML representation of the document.
