How would I create a list that only shows the ten most used tags for my site? Kind of how Delicious organizes tags. Any ideas?

Easy with get_tags(). Basic idea would be something like this:

$args = array(
        'orderby' => 'count',
        'order' => 'DESC',
        'number' => 10,

$tags = get_tags( $args );

Thanks! That with a foreach loop to generate the html did the trick. – zac Jan 26 '11 at 11:35
