Transpose songs to a new key

Come across this brilliant online transpose utility from Logue Internet Services thanks to a posting in the Open Invitational section of Ukulele Cosmos. Quite simply cut and paste a song into the window (use "In Search of a Rose" from my previous post as an example), then select your key and output format, couldn't be easier :)

Why would you want to do this? I'm sure there are a lot of reasons but three that I know of are :-
1. If you're having difficulty with a song, by transposing you could end up with easier chords to play(ideal for a beginner, but remember at some point you're going to have to learn all the chords ;) ).
2. A song may be too high or low for you to sing in, changing the key should fix it.
3. If you're playing with other people who know the song already in another key you can easily transpose to match there version.
