Web publishing is a whole new and cool world. I'm looking at the stats for my site and I notice there are two similar ones. "Number of requests" and "Number of page requests." What's the difference?

Not every request is for a page. Some are for image files or style sheet files and so on. Does your stats program have some kind of help or glossary?

It has a help section but I read the request and page request section several times and still didn't understand it.

Thanks for your help.
