We can create a word cloud via the Wordle web page at http://www.wordle.net/advanced. Wordle requires a list of words and weights in the following format:
Word1 : weight Word2 : weight
Modify the code from the previous example to print the word list. As a metric, we will use the word frequency and select the top percent. We don't need anything new for this. The final code is in the
