The tags were the reason I wanted to figure out the scroll box. I find tag clouds really aesthetically unappealing and I had the sense that people weren't using it, anyway. It took a little work -- I did it in a draft post first, saving it at intervals, so I didn't have to do the entire thing at once. As I was doing it, I winnowed out a bunch of tags that really weren't very good, and fixed some that had numerous instances of essentially the same tag. So it was worth doing. And I am getting a bit more hits on the tags now, too, despite the widget being at the bottom of the page.
