As far as I know, the Web Solver is now working. Any bugs that you find, please report to me. It has been tested on Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari. I have reports about it not positioning the boxes on Firefox. Right-click (word select) is not working on IE11. Other things may not work on other browsers, but I don't know at this time.
You can solve a puzzle multiple times, so if you want to try this out, go ahead but only submit the first try. I'll put some code in later to restrict one try per puzzle, or at least only one submission per puzzle. However, since the prize for winning the contest is of no monetary amount, restricting to one try may not be necessary.
IE8 does not recognize keyboard input. I thought that I fixed that, but it needs more work. IE8 does not handle the right-click (select word) correctly so this needs to be addressed also.
In any case, have fun with it and I'll post here if some problems qith quirky browsers are fixed. All my testing has been with Google Chrome, which seems to correspond to the w3c standards the best.
