Wordle is a simple and lovely art tool for generating “word clouds” from text. If you have no idea what word clouds are just see a sample screenshot below. To create a word cloud Wordle asks you to enter some source text. There are two options here, you can either generate a cloud from the text you provided it with or tell Worlde to use your del.icio.us tags instead. Pretty simple.

As you would expect from a tag cloud, the words that appear more frequently in the source text get a greater prominence in the cloud. Additionally, you have an option to customize the cloud further using different fonts, layouts, and colors. When you’re done with the cloud, you can print out, save it to the Wordle gallery, or grab a screenshot of it and save it on your PC.
