Hi there!

Well, about the user interface, I first apologize, it's still in
French. However, it works like this:

-Find a word according to the letters you have. Yo must type it in the
first text field labeled "Mot".
-Then click somewhere on the board to obtain coordinates. It will be
where your word will start.
-Finally, choose the word orientation (horizontaly or verticaly
oriented) and click on "Envoyer le mot".

If you want to repick letters, just put them in the "Mot" section and
click "Echanger des lettres".

Sure it's a bit painful compared to a drag&drop gameplay. I guess so
we'll have to use the Scriptaculous library to implement it
eh?...let's put it on our Todo List :)

There is no french dictionary for the moment, so yes, you can put any
word you want, it will works, no word validation for the moment.
Still, you can't put a word for wich you don't have the letters and
you can't put a word that don't use any of the existing letters on the

We thought about sending queries to Wiktionary website in order to
check word validity. Do you think it's possible to do so?
