You gave pawn FAQ but didn't include en passant. Which should be shown with response to pawn's first move. If your pawn is on its 5th rank and a person moves adjacent to the left or right of your pawn (its 4th rank) on you next turn only you can take that pawn because it had to move through attack.

[Editor's note: Thank you for your comment. We actually link here to a page on En Passant but it would be good to describe them in brief, perhaps with the language you use. Would be good to add some animation illustrating en passant too. Thanks again.]
