Doesn't wordle.net not do it (semi)-automagic, if you feed in the link, or text? And I'd guess there's other sites as well that do the same.

At the bottom of this page on the following link is an example of a "word cloud" I'm used to seeing.

What about phrases? Examples: portable library or adjustable font sizes or library in your hands

eInk?

Red face How about this?

Just for the heck of it, I Googled, found a page entitled A very basic e-book primer: What should it cover?, and pasted the following text from the article into Wordle.net:

Quote:
Why (Not) to Buy E-books

* E-book advantages (carry anywhere, read on multiple devices, keep your place, instant large-print, doesn’t take up space on your bookshelf, etc.)
* E-book disadvantages (DRM, can’t resell, need to charge up, pricy device, etc.)

E-book Formats

* EPUB (Adobe, Barnes & Noble, Apple, DRM-free)
* MobiPocket (Kindle, DRM-free)
* PDF

E-Readers

* Kindle
* Nook
* Sony
* Kobo
* iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad
Result attached.

Of course, you can tweak the input text and word frequency (not to mention the font and color scheme) to adjust the result to taste.

Edit: Whoops, I see it. Never mind. For what it's worth, I like word clouds.

Yes, but Wordle only makes clouds in a rectangle. I want a banner (much wider and shorter).
