    Creating web based word searchs

    Anybody know any tools out there for creating word searchs that run in web browsers instead of printing them off? We want some for our VLE, but all the ones i find are for printing out.

    Off the top of my head you could do this in Flash, create a grid with some hot areas? Get the kids to click on each letter when they find a word then it turns a different colour?
