Well...nobody replied and while waiting I kept playing with Photo Stream and I think I found the answer to my own question. In case it may help someone else....
After viewing a new photo that's been posted I found that if I back out to the Photo Stream home page (where it shows streams you're subscribed to and has a + sign to add your own) that cleared the new photo(s) number.
I don't understand the logic behind that process but whatever...it works.
