Love it!

How did you make some words bigger and others smaller? I couldn't find a function to emphasize single words.

Wordle sizes the words by frequency used in the text you submit.  I submitted the whole text of the short story Brokeback Mountain.  So you can see the two most used words in the story, and then the next most, etc.  

The one I made above is with the following settings:
Font: Beryllium
Mostly horizontal
Alphabetical
Rounded edges
The 200 most frequent words

I kept reclicking "Re-layout with current settings" til I got one I liked particularly.

It's fun.

I just read the website some more.  If you click on 'Advanced' near the top, it discusses how to to do that selectively.

Hi Lee, not sure what you mean.  That is the site where I made the design.  The only way I found to keep the design is to do a capture, then turn it into a jpg.  I'd love if someone could figure out a simple process.

Cool, Fran.  In reading a little more of the advanced stuff on the site, I saw that if you put a tilda between two words you want to stick together, like "Del~Mar", it will come out looking like "Del Mar," not "Del" one place, and "Mar" another.
