Have you heard of Wordle? If not, you may want to check it out. Wordle generates
“word clouds” from text that you provide, with these clouds
giving greater prominence to words that appear more frequently
in the source text. You can "wordle" selected text, a whole document, or an entire website / blog.
In addition to just be a cool toy to play with, I think that Wordle can be an effective tool for attorneys interested in analyzing specific documents. For instance, if a personal injury attorney sends a demand letter to an insurance adjuster, he might be interested in first seeing what the focus of the letter is from the word cloud produced.
