Have you ever tried to share a Sudoku with a friend thru email, or through postings in forums/ groups/ discussion boards? If so, you'll know what a pain it is. Everyday, millions of Sudoku enthusiasts the world over try to solve Sudoku puzzles. Thousands of them try to share their Sudokus, puzzles solutions, and even intermediate steps. And it's such a pain.
Why is it a pain? Because you have to create your own text-based Table, or type in the numbers in Text form with dots/ dashes for the blank Cells? For example, something like,
5. . .7694.
.3. . . .1. .
21. . . .83.
3. .6.2. .5
.64. . . .79
. .8. . . .9.
.5312. . .4

They have to carefully copy your numbers on to paper or on to their Computer, using some template before making any sense of it! Well, you can now breathe easy!
