Hi Ian,

I can show you code for igraph -- would need to think about it a bit more in statnet, but the principles are the same. Not elegant, no doubt, but it works. There may, for example, be a simpler way to do this with a merge of some sort. I just did this on a graph I had handy. I colored the names according to communities (found using the spinglass.community algorithm) using the colorspace package.

Given a graph g (370 vertices, 1565 edges):

spc <- spinglass.community(g, spins=20)
cols <- rainbow_hcl(10, c = c(80, 30), l = c(30, 90)) ## colorspace
g.layout <- layout.fruchterman.reingold(g)

ccc <- sort(betweenness(g), decreasing = TRUE)

thebigs <- names(ccc[1:20])
bignames <- rep(NA,370)
aaa <- rep(NA, 20)
for(i in 1:20) aaa[i] <- which(thebigs[i] == V(g)$name)
bignames[aaa] <- thebigs
V(g)$bignames <- bignames

plot(g, vertex.label=V(g)$bignames, layout=g.layout,
     vertex.size=0, vertex.color="white", vertex.frame.color="white",
     vertex.label.cex=0.75, vertex.label.color=cols[spc$membership], edge.color=rgb(209,209,209,70, max=255), edge.width=2)

You can alter the vertex label size, for example passing a vector argument to the vertex.label.cex argument.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Jamie
