Playing around with SVG a bit. Here is a visualization of all the words in "The Hacker Crackdown", "Huckleberry Finn", and "Middlemarch":

The x-axis is the average position that the word occurs in a sentence, (so that words that typically begin sentences are farther to the left, and words that occur late, and in long sentences occur farther to the right) and the y-axis is log frequency.

Full svg files and larger pngs and the perl (sorry!) script that made them all are in this directory.
