Clobberers - Nutters

This is a try-out of the new highlighting method of the interactive diagram for use with 50x50 piece images like alfaerie. urrently the diagram takes the marker symbols from the folder with the xboard33 piece set, where I put them as 33x33 PNG images, but they might be good enough for 50x50 as well.

Btw, I made it possible to switch between symbol and color highlighting by clicking the lowest line of the color legend. (Which appears together with the 'minimized' piece table.) This 'hidden feature' does not work on grey-scale displays, however; there it always uses symbol highlighting.
