Yep, and it's JS:
src="http://sm3.sitemeter.com/meter.asp?site=sm3lifehacker" alt="Site Meter"
I use Google (Analytics|AdSense) + FeedBurner (Flare, Ad Network, Analytics)
+ WordPress Stats
Google uses JS, but actually site owners have a choice of _locally_ hosting
the analytics JS - which I do. You are not allowed to locally host the
adsense, but I'm not about to disable it because of slightly higher load
WordPress uses an image.
FeedBurner (and hopefully it'll stay that way.... knock on wood) though you
can host their scripts on your server as well if you feel the need.
