Tagxedo turns words -- famous speeches, news articles, slogans, and themes, even your love letters -- into a visually stunning word cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text. Tagxedo, like Wordle, is a word cloud generator. This tool, however, allows the creator more options about how to organize the cloud.
