When you post your puzzles here, use a format that both the humans and computer programs can read.

This format is widely accepted:

Code:
7 . 8|. . .|3 . .
. . .|2 . 1|. . .
5 . .|. . .|. . .
-----+-----+-----
. 4 .|. . .|. 2 6
3 . .|. 8 .|. . .
. . .|1 . .|. 9 .
-----+-----+-----
. 9 .|6 . .|. . 4
. . .|. 7 .|5 . .
. . .|. . .|. . .


Use the Code formatting to make it look so nice and aligned.

You can also post an image from your solver program (when available). Images can be hosted on a variety of websites.

To highlight particular interesting stages of solving, use candidates grids, like these:

Code:
.------------------------.------------------------.------------------------.
| 7       126     8      | 459     4569    4569   | 3       1456    1259   |
| 469     36      3469   | 2       34569   1      | 4679    45678   5789   |
| 5       1236    123469 | 78      3469    78     | 12469   146     129    |
:------------------------+------------------------+------------------------:
| 189     4       1579   | 3579    59      3579   | 178     2       6      |
| 3       1267    12679  | 479     8       24679  | 147     1457    157    |
| 268     25678   2567   | 1       2456    24567  | 478     9       3      |
:------------------------+------------------------+------------------------:
| 128     9       12357  | 6       125     2358   | 127     1378    4      |
| 12468   12368   12346  | 3489    7       23489  | 5       1368    1289   |
| 12468   135678  1234567| 34589   12459   234589 | 12679   13678   12789  |
'------------------------'------------------------'------------------------'


Again, the Code tags make it more readable.
