Or, alternatively you could use this code. Add this snippet to theme template file. It just returns simple links, which can be styled with CSS. Wrap the function in <div> tags or paragraph tags for the desired styling.

<?php wp_tag_cloud(array(
  'smallest' => 10,      // size of least used tag
  'largest' => 18,       // size of most used tag
  'unit' => 'px',        // unit for sizing
  'orderby' => 'name',   // alphabetical
  'order' => 'ASC',      // starting at A
  'exclude' => 6         // ID of tag to exclude from list
)); ?>
