Yup. Exactly. The example posted by 0scar also shows how all columns/rows can have all options.

If you answered when asked questions about clarifying the rules then people might be more interested. Specifically, you didn't answer any of my queries.

That is correct! The most words possible in a 15*15 crossword is 96, if the grid is symmetrical and connected, and every word has at least 3 letters.

000010000100000
000010000100000
000010000100000
111000111000111
000001000010000
000100000001000
000010000100000
111000111000111
000001000010000
000100000001000
000010000100000
111000111000111
