Bug Description

When doing multiplication, leading zeros are traditionally omitted. Displaying letter standins for leading zeros may confuse a puzzle solver who isn't expecting this behavior.

While I agree that when actually doing the long addition, one doesn't use zeros, omitting them in the puzzle setting would give away too much information. I feel the zeros are part of the puzzle.

But thank you for the suggestion!
