What is a Palindrome?

A palindrome is a word or words that can be read the same way backwards as they can be read forwards. Palindromes should not be confused with anagrams, which are words that share the same letters. For example: Palindromes are for fun. They provide a unique challenge for those who wish to attempt them.
