Editor's Note:
Crosswords requires that you first create the crossword in the EclipseCrossword maker which is a free Windows based tool. Once you have created the crossword you should go to the "Save As a Webpage" tab and click "Interactive with JavaScript" link. Save and then edit this file. Find the first JavaScript section (under the CSS part) and copy the section between <!-- and -->. You use this when creating the crossword in the module, by pasting it into the "Words From Eclipse Java" textbox. This is the only part you need for an interactive crossword.

To have a hardcopy crossword as well (to print out), you need to first create another file from the EclipseCrossword maker. From the "Save As a Webpage" tab choose "Empty gird and clues" and save the file (without spaces in the name). Upload this file to uploads/crosswords. You can then choose this file in the "Hardcopy File" drop-down. If you do this a link will be shown under the interactive crossword. This link will display the crossword in a printable layout outside of the Dragonfly framework.

Please see the example crossword for clarification.
