Wordle is an application available for free on the web. It creates a word picture of a text where the size of a term is weighted by frequency of its use. Give 'Wordle' a try on a text of your own, it's kinda fun (http://www.wordle.net/). The online interface is straightforward although it allows personalization of the word cloud product via layout, font, and color options.
