I am creating a live WordCloud web-based screen.
I have written the script to record the cloud words to my db and out put them to the screen via ajax. The output screen checks for new words every 30 seconds.

I now want to be arty and place each keyword / div on the screen in an organized random format!! Ideally what I want it for each DIV to animate into place and move to make space for new div which will be added.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can do this??

Many Thanks

I have seen that but was worried it may be a lot of work pulling it apart to suit my needs.

What I want be able to do is if the weight changes (which is pulled from the database) then the font sizes change.... Or if a new word gets added then it gets added to the wordle (with the other words moving out the way if needed).

Any ideas??
