The site has moved to a new server, and there are now some issues to fix. For example, it looks like you can't post comments. I will look into that in the morning.

When your page includes ASCII diagrams, never put the editor in WYSIWYG mode. That will mess things up for you big time. Stick to Source mode, and your code will remain unchanged. An ASCII diagram should be enclosed in PRE tags, not in a FONT tag. You also don't need any BR tags in an ASCII diagram, and it looks like WYSIWYG mode added them in. So, what you want to do is to replace your FONT tags with PRE tags, and get rid of all the BR tags in your ASCII diagram. I did this for the one in your setup, but since I don't know how it originally looked, I don't know if I got it right.

Although the Diagram Designer can be used for most boards, it cannot automatically draw pentagonal boards. So you're on your own there unless you can get someone else to draw them for you.
