    Sure, you can save it as a file that can be printed out, but it can also be saved as a neat little on line crossword. I've used it for a while now, and find that my students- who often struggle with anything that isn't quite intuitive to use- love to do the puzzles. I like the way you get a choice of how it looks- just set eclipse to generate a new puzzle and it will try again and again until you have a version you like the look of.
    It's also portable- teachers without admin privilieges can still use it, installed on a flashdrive.
