Yes, but by appearence of the first letter.
so if you have this grid:

GeSHi`ed Plaintext code
1
2
3
4
56
 
ooba
xfxr
xxxx
xxxx
 

the solution would be barfoo.

So the jump from 'r' to 'f' means that the letters do not have to touch the next letter, only that the next letter touch one of the letters prior to it, right? For example, could 'barfoo' be written this way?

rxxx
axxx
bfoo
xxxx
