Is it possible to have some custom text float to the right of the diagram?

Well, you have to make the diagram float left. The diagram design wizard already proposes that, by putting a style="float:left; margin: 0 10px 10px 0" with the <div> element used to package the diagram parameters. Any following text will then wrap nicely around it.

BTW, it is possible to have the diagram script generate a the list of pieces (plus squares coordinates) that you like to go there as a 'satellite', by putting a <ul id="xxxList"></ul> where you want the list to appear. The advantage is that the list is clickable, and then brings up the move diagram of the clicked piece. (As in the CwdA diagram, after you select an army.) But I guess that for replacing images in existing articles the lists will already exist.

Also, can we do 3 square colors for games with nightriders

The diagram can already do that (e.g. see the Caissa Britannia diagram I made), but currently it can be switched on only through embedded extra JavaScript (<script>oddShade = "#E04040";</script>). It will be totally trivial to make a 'regular' diagram parameter oddShade for it, though.

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.
