xwds? Ok, maybe not…at one time, though, I held the esteemed position of crossword editor of the Minneosta Technolog, a magazine that seems to have petered out of existence.

Apparently some of the higher end programs aren’t that bad at constructing xwds. To that end, this article in slate was pretty entertaining.
