so webalizer will count each image and every scriptlet referenced by your page
via src="xyz" as a hit.
is used in that way) they are counted as well.
AFAIK webalizer counts every request to a file with a filename extension
specified via PageType in the config file as a pageview.
Here is what I have in my webalizer.conf:
So every hit on a file with a name ending with .php,
.php3, .phps, .htm or .html will count to the total pageviews.
