We give a new simple proof for the weights of Ocneanu's trace on Iwahori-Hecke algebras of type A. This trace is used in the construction of the HOMFLYPT-polynomial of knots and links (which includes the famous Jones polynomial as a special case). Our main tool is Starkey's rule concerning the character tables of Iwahori-Hecke algebras of type A.
