I notice one slip-up in my notation: I have used B for both Bishop (2nd rank) and Brassgeneral (1st rank). However the letters are only for guidance as I have not given letters for promotees: any implementation would something more symbolic. It occurs to me that as 'more sideways than forward/backwards' obliques are not used in Shogi they could represent 3d radials in move-diagram symbols. I tried to draw some examples in Ascii Art, but the Preview stuck in extra newline characters which made them look all wrong.

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>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
