I ran across a few like that, too. I'm a bit confused as to the 
difference between a word cloud and a tag cloud. I'm guessing tag clouds 
presume that you've attached some form of tag to an example text, which 
the code would use to sort upon whereas word clouds you just point the 
code to a pile of text that has not been tagged/grouped?
