Focus Clouds

Focus clouds. It's like a tag cloud but with more focus. With PHP source code. Makes tag clouds just a little more interesting.

It's... random? Is it worth highlighting less popular content if the resulting tag cloud has no meaning? Have I missed something?

@AdamD: Its not random, I think you might be getting it confused with searchthebeat.com's focus cloud. Whose name/term "focus cloud" was the inspiration for this one.

But the way in which the cloud is generated does not rely purely on chance. Instead it attempts to highlight those tags which are popular now rather than just those tags which have been most popular over-all.
