My first thought was Doppelgängerschach. Only when I posted the page and it failed to turn up on the lists did I think to check whether the Doppelgänger had any existing meaning in Chess variants. It had and I guessed that the similarity to the names of existing variants was the reason for it not appearing.

My guess for the reason it didn't appear is that the itemid for this page had a non-ASCII character in it, and your browser didn't know how to read the URL. Thanks to David Howe, it has now been normalized, and problems like this should be prevented in the future. As part of my efforts to convert the site to UTF-8, I have also changed the non-ASCII ANSI characters in this document to UTF-8.
