Hi I am using this:

The URL cannot contain a scheme or hostname, only a path and an optional query string.

Thanks. Okay this is what I want to do. Our server doesn't offer support for dynamic pages so in short we cannot develop scripts on that server. We want to create a hidden counter for a .shtml page on that server and since that server doesn't support dynamic page we though we can put the script on a different server that supports scripts and then include it in the .shtml file. So...I just found out that this cannot be done. Is there anyway that I can create a hidden counter for a .shtml page on a server that doesnot support scripting of any kind. Note: I can still develop and host the scrit on a seperate server but I need a way for it to communicate to the .shtml page. Any ideas thoughts?

My first thought is that you are interesting in server side scripting and the powerful options you have, and that is great. However, you are hosting your site(s) with a provider that doesn't allow it, that's not great -- perhaps a new partner is something to consider? ;)
Alternatives? Well, you could always use a hidden image in your page to hit the other server with some type of query string that you could use to provide tracking.

Well..I guess we cannot change providers since this is a corporate intranet and the organization doesn't want us to change providers because they don't understand the power of server side scripting. Anyhow, I was looking for alternatives, could you please explain on the method that you suggested(I think it is a good idea!).

It's a very common approach used by site stat providers and site hit counters.
You have an image file in the page which is a reference link. It is basically a 1x1 pixel image of ... well nothing. The url leads to a script that logs the info and sends back the image, ... that never gets seen.
