I'm a bit behind in my email, so you may've already received an
answer, but have you looked at the Typo code which handles tags
(keywords)?  This does exactly what you're looking for.

Grab a copy of the Typo source code via svn checkout
svn:// typo

Then take a look at app/models/tag.rb,
components/plugins/sidebars/tag_controller.rb and
components/plugins/sidebars/tag/content.rhtml.  This is the code which
varies the font-size of the tags based on their percent-used.

Good idea, I'll check that out. I haven't used Typo before, so I
didn't know it had this functionality. Thanks for the pointer.
