TagCrowd – make your own tag cloud from any text

A simpler, primitive but very usable and less over-technologised system than Wordle that takes some plain text (or HTML from ANY web page) and turns it into a tag cloud. I saw Wordle when it was relatively young (months, not years ago!) and it was slightly more like this, though even then had some novel output options and was less developer-focused than TagCrowd. TagCrowd generates very clear legible, standards compliant, HTML/CSS but little else. They profess a desire to build an API, but it has none yet. Even so, sometimes simple is beautiful. A nice little system.
