@Jean-Louis: You posted the Interactive Diagram as text, rather than HTML source.

And if you prefer board-painter piece symbols over alfaerie, why don't you use those in the Interactive Diagram too? The Interactive Diagrams in the on-line appendix for your book all use the board-painter images. I think it would be much better to keep some uniformity within the article.

@Fergus: What is 'his site'? We do have a Jocly installed here, and if I invoke it, Reformed Courier Spiel appears in the list of "other Jocly Games" on the Jocly page (viewed through the iframe) itself. And it appears to work fine there.

Itis not in the overview of Jocly-supported chess variants, though. That overview is very incomplete. It also strikes me as strange that it is organized by date of creation, like it is a What's New page. This is not helpful when searching for a variant at all; alphabetical order would be much better.

It would also be good if articles for which a Jocly implementation exists would contain a direct link for starting Jocly for that variant.
