Filling the crossword

To fill the crossword simply type in your answer and the cursor will automatically move to the next square. If a letter is incorrect, it will appear in red. To correct a letter, position the cursor on it and type your answer. Alternatively, you can erase a letter by using Backspace or Delete keys (only incorrect letters can be erased).
