    // Don't change anything past this point --------------
    // Cloud function s() ripped from del.icio.us
    function s(a,b,i,x){
    if(a&gt;b){
    var m=(a-b)/Math.log(x),v=a-Math.floor(Math.log(i)*m)
    }
    else{
    var m=(b-a)/Math.log(x),v=Math.floor(Math.log(i)*m+a)
    }
    return v
    }
    var c=[];
    var labelCount = new Array();
    var ts = new Object;
    <b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
    var theName = &quot;<data:label.name/>&quot;;
    ts[theName] = <data:label.count/>;
    </b:loop>
    for (t in ts){
    if (!labelCount[ts[t]]){
    labelCount[ts[t]] = new Array(ts[t])
    }
    }
    var ta=cloudMin-1;
    tz = labelCount.length - cloudMin;
    lc2 = document.getElementById('labelCloud');
    ul = document.createElement('ul');
    ul.className = 'label-cloud';
    for(var t in ts){
    if(ts[t] &lt; cloudMin){
    continue;
    }
    for (var i=0;3 &gt; i;i++) {
    c[i]=s(minColor[i],maxColor[i],ts[t]-ta,tz)
    }
    var fs = s(minFontSize,maxFontSize,ts[t]-ta,tz);
    li = document.createElement('li');
    li.style.fontSize = fs+'px';
    li.style.lineHeight = '1';
    a = document.createElement('a');
    a.title = ts[t]+' Posts in '+t;
    a.style.color = 'rgb('+c[0]+','+c[1]+','+c[2]+')';
    a.href = '/search/label/'+encodeURIComponent(t);
    if (lcShowCount){
    span = document.createElement('span');
    span.innerHTML = '('+ts[t]+') ';
    span.className = 'label-count';
    a.appendChild(document.createTextNode(t));
    li.appendChild(a);
    li.appendChild(span);
    }
    else {
    a.appendChild(document.createTextNode(t));
    li.appendChild(a);
    }
    ul.appendChild(li);
    abnk = document.createTextNode(' ');
    ul.appendChild(abnk);
    }
    lc2.appendChild(ul);
    </script>
    <noscript>
    <ul>
    <b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
    <li>
    <b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:label.url'>
    <data:label.name/>
    <b:else/>
    <a expr:href='data:label.url'><data:label.name/></a>
    </b:if>
    </li>
    </b:loop>
    </ul>
    </noscript>
    <b:include name='quickedit'/>
    </div>
    </b:includable>
    </b:widget>
