    Many thanks!
    (I didn’t think that would output the chars, too)

    Really? I only get a match not for ‘count-line-region’ but for ‘count-lines-region’.

    In any case, yes, it is counter-intuitive that the LISP function for counting lines should count characters too.

    2017 version, to count words and characters in a selection: M-x count-words-region
