 > So, basically, #5172 does exactly what you want. You can style the
 weights as colors if you choose.
 hm... not quite, since the "X" in "tag-cloud-size-x" is an absolute number
 which depends on the amount of the tags shown, you need to know the
 numbers calculated aforehand for your stylesheet - so you have to expand
 your stylesheet everytime you choose to change the number of tags shown in
 your tag-cloud.
 $tag_size = round($smallest + ( ( $count - $min_count ) * $font_step ),0);
 The "$count" is dependend on  the call to the function in the template,
 where one will set how many tags will be shown - at least this is how I
 understand it :-)[[BR]]
 I still find it more comfortable (and more "wordpress-like") if the color-
 range could be set via the call to the function in the theme.[[BR]]
 But - if the color is calculated via the function, it would require an
 inline style, which is kind of ugly, too.[[BR]]
