Ray (or someone else here at WebAssist): If that is the case, feel free to remove my solution below. I don't want to break any laws :)
Here was my solution:
1: Insert a LIKE button with the ACTION set to LIKE and the Style set to "Button_Count"
2: In the DIV tag that wraps this scripting, I simply added some custom styles. I set the width to be only 47px wide (enough for the button and a little growth space for different languages) and the Overflow to "hidden" so it would not show anything outside of that width.
Here is a sample of my opening DIV tag:
<div class="wasocial_facebook_like" style="width:47px; overflow:hidden">
In english, this shows the LIKE button, but does not display the count beside it.
