.... Tag Queries for a Thursday Early Afternoon ....
I. Are there implementions/technologies that can display the degree of association/co-occurence of Tags within a corpus (and enable one to navigate in one way or another (e.g., tag cloud and/or other visualization))?
II. Are there implementations/technologies that allow one to designate the relevative importance of a tag for a section and/or corpus of  text? Major / Minor Importance Would Be A Good Beginning (e.g. Bold vs. Non-Bold) 
BTW: Certainly The Ability To Indicate Relative Importance by Font Size / Style Would Be More Interesting [:-)

III.  Are there implementations/technologies that allow one to sort sub-document tagged text by select criteria?
For example:  Have the ability (re)sort tagged text sections (e.g. paragraphs) such that the most relevant  sorted sections are displayed before those of less relevance (e.g. sections with tags that are more 'associated' or co-occurring
BTW: Tagging Is Not Limited To 'Text' (Can Also Apply To Photos (Flickr), Videos (YouTube), Other Media .
