Hi!

Has someone seen or written a crossword
generator in python?

I want to give this script a list of words and
questions and it should generate a HTML document
which can be printed. (No need for a GUI)

The algorithm is not that easy. The crossword should
be as dense as it can be.

It could look like this:
    3
 1foo
2perl
 y  d
 t
 h
 o
 n

1 horizontal: Word meaning everything
1 vertical: Best programming language
2 horizontal: Language of Larry Wall
3 vertical: Not young
