Setup graphics, piece sets[Subject Thread] [Add Response]

I hate everything about the Abstract set. It is by far the ugliest piece set I have ever seen. The coloring scheme is obnoxious. But there is no accounting for taste, of course. It is an interesting discussion wheter it is desirable to use piece images that fully imply how the piece moves. In Chess that is far more difficult than in Shogi (which has virtually no oblique leaps).

@Greg: what do you see as a disadvantage for using Interactive Diagrams as the main diagram? I never saw the point in having two diagrams of the same position on the same page. It just seems to waste space.
