I finally got around to updating this to incorporate the various suggestions and corrections.

  • Added a section on how castling is described in XBetza notation

  • Added examples where the castling move is preserved, but with pieces other than king and/or rook. In Knightmate, the knight castles instead of the king. In CwDA, the king castles with pieces other than rooks. I also mentioned the exception for castling with a colorbound piece with the Colorbound Clobberers.

  • Updated the first occurrence of Fast Castling to Wide Chess

  • Fixed the text size issue in the History of Castling section by eliminating the HTML table. Did not need to use Flexbox, thankfully, because I have not had time to get my mind around that yet (although it looks interesting.)
