Markup As Art

Here is an extremely cool way of looking at websites – it turns the HTML code tree into a graph, with nodes coloured according to tag type, and then lays them out in an aesthetically-pleasing manner. And, of course, modern clean HTML looks much nicer than old crufty table-based tag soup.

The applet which generates them is also online (requires Java). Put your favourite URLs into it, and post any here which make particularly beautiful pictures.
