Possible Values



anything that doesn't contain a space

Uniquely identifies the page calling the counter. This is case-sensitive.
See examples below.


0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or 9

The width of the resulting image in digits. Extra zeros will be added to the beginning. If the width is too short for the number to be displayed, it is lengthened so that all digits may be displayed. Default is 4


any directory name under the/digits directory, for example, led,
or the reserved value simple. Should
not contain spaces

Specifies the set of digits to use in constructing the final image, or
specifies the use of the simple style 1. Should be all lower-case


  yes or no (must be lowercase).

  If ord=yes, an ordinal number will be outputted 2. An ordinal number is a number like 345th, 10871st, 22nd, etc. The default is no


  RRGGBB or trans

  When using the simple style, specifies the background color of the image, or if trans is used, specifies a transparent background. RRGGBB should be 3 2-digit hex values in one string, similar to the
HTML command <BODY BGCOLOR="RRGGBB">. This argument has no meaning when style does not equal simple. The default is 000000 (black).



  When using the simple style, specifies the foreground color of the
image. Same format as bgcolor. The default is FFFFFF (white)


  0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5

  Determines how much to increment the counter. Using 0 means the counter will not increment. Using a value less than 0 will result in no increment. Using a value greater than 5 will result in an increment of 5.
