I came across this page today, because Google Search Console informed me of a bad link on it. When I came across it, it was filled with gobbledygook instead of Chinese characters. Thinking that this could have been because of attempts to enforce unicode consistently, I found a copy on that was still in Chinese, and I re-entered the Chinese text here. I also updated the links at the end to match the English links on the English Shogi page, though I didn't group them into sections, because I can't read or write Chinese. Noticing some English text in the links, I went to edit it again, and all the text was in gobbledygook again. But when I turned off Javascript, it was back in Chinese, which allowed me to make my edits by inserting the Chinese character the translator was using for "by". So, it looks like the gobbledygook was caused by using CKEditor. Maybe CKEditor is expecting a different character set than unicode. I'll have to look into this.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
