Better use of Tagul

More experiments.

I've used the API this time, and that allows me to map each tag to exactly the right target URL without upsetting the appearance of the tag cloud - I was also able to edit the list so that one composer (James Oswald) did not overpower all the others.

The XML is really simple - I generated it from a single SQL statement.

When I have time I will improve it so that composers I want to highlight (e.g. this year's anniversaries) come out in a different colour.

Then it will be time to decide whether this is actually any use to potential website customers or not! But I do really like this technology, it's so simple to use.
