â€œTags are only 1 of 6 sizes, so it cannot scale easily.â€ Arthus â€“ thatâ€™s true in my example. Many tag clouds only have certain pre-set levels. Technoratiâ€™s is something of an exception, which is why you can find quite so many nested EMs. However, thereâ€™s nothing to stop people defining more steps and therefore more classes.
â€œthe information youâ€™re providing in the additional text is very verboseâ€ Brothercake â€“ thatâ€™s very true, and for a cloud with a lot of links that would be a valid concern.
â€œBut, why make different information available to screenreaders than is available to sighted users.â€ Brothercake â€“ I do believe that information should be available, and not just using CSS. My point here was not to show the ultimate tag cloud; rather, just that existing tag clouds could be made better and more semantic without altering how they are displayed to the user with CSS. Personally, Iâ€™m not that a big fan of tag clouds. But I am a fan of semantic markup. :)
