There are some Private Use Area code point encodings for Unicode compatible chess fonts introduced and indexed at the web page. These code points are simply my own suggestions which are placed in the Private Use Area which Unicode provides for private use. However, if people making Unicode compatible chess fonts did choose to use these code points for the various symbols then fonts would be interoperable one with another and end users would be able easily to try out how a chess diagram looks in various fonts without needing to reset the diagram. The Quest text font which is available at the web page now has included within it a number of sorts for producing chess diagrams. These are located within the Private Use Area of the Unicode code space.
