A Silverlight TagCloud, Part 2.1: Refinements

Maybe this post should be “Part 3”, but I think of it as more of an incremental increase over Part 2 of this series, so we’ll leave it at 2.1. In any case, this is the third post in a series about a Silverlight TagCloud control I wrote that began with a discussion of theRead more
