If you're thinking of venturing into the 'web 2.0' world of tag clouds, Joe Lamantia has come up with a list of best practices for displaying them.
I've posted before about tag clouds, and remain on the fence as to their usefulness as a navigation tool.
However, in the comments to Joe's post, a reader pointed out the value of tag clouds from an SEO standpoint, with all of those rich keywords and accompanying internal links that search engines love.
This is an angle I hadn't considered before, which certainly adds weight to their addition to a site if it can be done in a way that is user-friendly.
