What determines which tags show in navigation? Why are some bigger? Is that just a stylistic thing? Can you manage which tags show?

The display is intended to be a "tagcloud", a mechanism which was popular when blogging was big to show relative importance. The more often you've tagged a blog entry with a word, the larger the word appears. So "planning" currently appears largest, as you've tagged 7 entries with it, while "reddingtonshores" with 3 entries appears medium sized, and "oregon" with 1 entry appears smallest.

There's four different sizes, and which tag gets which size is calculated again each time you publish a new entry.

If you want, you can apply some custom CSS (by editing the template style) to make these tags all appear the same size, and/or each appear on a separate line. It's a somewhat technical process to do this, but if you're interested, I'd be happy to talk you through the steps for it. (Just reply here that you'd like that.)
