United Launches Interactive Crossword Puzzle

By: E&P Staff United Feature Syndicate has begun offering an online version of its seven-day-a-week print puzzle.

"Today's Interactive Crossword," which uses Flash technology, is provided to clients with a link they can imbed in their sites.

People solving the puzzle can click on any box for an entire row to light up, and then type in the answer. (They click once to fill in an "across" answer, and twice for a "down" answer.)

There's also a "check your answers" tab to track accuracy, with correct letters turning blue and incorrect ones remaining black. And there's a timer for competitive players.
