//Settings / Variables
var max = 150; //max css size (in percent)
var min = 70; //min css size (in percent)
var showCount = false;  // show counts? true for yes,
 false for no
var minCount = 1;  // what is the minimum count for a tag 
 to be shown? 1 for all


//Begin code:
var range = max - min;

//Build label Array
var labels = new Array();
<b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
labels.push(&quot;<data:label.name/>&quot;);
</b:loop>

//URLs
var urls = new Array();
<b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
urls.push(&quot;<data:label.url/>&quot;);
</b:loop>

//Counts
var counts = new Array();
<b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
counts.push(&quot;<data:label.count/>&quot;);
</b:loop>

//Number sort funtion (high to low)
function sortNumber(a, b)
{
return b - a;
}

//Make an independant copy of counts for sorting
var sorted = counts.slice();

//Find the largest tag count
var most = sorted.sort(sortNumber)[0];

//Begin HTML output
for (x in labels)
{
if(x != &quot;peek&quot; &amp;&amp; x != &quot;forEach&quot;
 &amp;&amp; counts[x] >= minCount)
{
//Calculate textSize
var textSize = min + Math.floor((counts[x]/most) * range);
//Show counts?
if(showCount)
{
var count = &quot;(&quot; + counts[x] + &quot;)&quot;;
}else{
var count = &quot;&quot;;
}
//Output
document.write(&quot;<span style='font-size:&quot; + textSize
 + &quot;%'><a href='&quot; + urls[x] + &quot;'
 style='text-decoration:none;'>&quot; + labels[x] + count + &quot;</a></span>
&quot; );
}
