Javascript Sudoku Solver

Friday afternoon I started to get a bit.. bored. For some reason I decided to cope with that by writing a sudoku solver in javascript. The logic is pretty minimalistic, so it won't solve the difficult sudoku puzzles, but for you normal "in the comics section of the newspaper" puzzles, it should nail the majority of them.

You can copy the html below if you want to include it on your webpage/blog/whatever for some reason:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><noscript><a href="">Javascript Sudoku Solver</a></noscript>

    It's a horrible habit.

    You should look at the source – it's a brilliant mess that makes almost zero sense. 🙂 If you didn't know it was supposed to solve a sudoku puzzle, it'd be almost impossible to tell.. actually, even knowing what it's supposed to do…

    There's also a cell spacing issue in Internet Explorer.. but I'm feeling lazy now, and it works fine in firefox.

    I am a Suduko professional. I do not appreciate you cheating at Suduko. Please reconsider the function of your Suduko program.
