Just for your information Patzy. I don't seem to be able to run Tagxedo at present. I've got Silverlight installed but it won't run on Firefox or IE.  Chrome doesn't support it anymore so that isn't an option.
I've just tried Opera and that won't work either. What a shame.

Just found this site though which looks like it will produce very similar results.

All the options are on the top row in white - the word list can be cleared and then you add your own.
It will take some practice to learn this new option as on first try, it isn't as straight forward as the Tagxedo we know and love.

I tried putting some words in and got this : This word list is syntactically incorrect. Please double-check your syntax and try again.

look at the list that is there when you first go into it - they all have a weight value.  So put a number in front of your words - small words will need a lower number etc.  Then copy and paste them over a few times.  When they are in your window, use the slider under all the words are there.  I can't be of more help Patzy as it is new to me too.

How strange, I have it working in IE now, but still won't play in Firefox. Chrome is a no no  but I knew that.
