Tag clouds with Domino

Good old Ferdy has come up with an excellent article demonstrating how to render content in a Domino database as a so-called “tag cloud”, you know, the sort of thing you see on Flickr et al.

Ferdy’s solution is pretty elegant, using constructs such as a categorised view, some Javascript and CSS. This is something (one of many things) I’ve been meaning to apply thought to for months, so thanks Ferdy!
