These TrueType fonts by Armando H. Marroquin fonts can be
used for figurine notation: the characters for king, queen, rook, bishop, and
knight are replaced by chess pieces/figurines. In the Times New Roman font,
some characters are changed to those of the chess pieces they represent.
Based on Switserland font.
FigurineSymbol S1. For
Croatian, Danish, English, German, Slavonic, Swedish, and Yugoslavian.
FFEN and FFEN-to-HTML. Extension

Checkers or draughts font
I made a checkers or draughts font. This is also useful for chess variants
that use checkers pieces. Rules of use, and borders are the same as for
the Chess Utrecht font: see The description of Chess
Utrecht. This is not sufficiently tested: let me know if it works on
your machine. Also, I'm not sure this is really the correct version...
You may use this draughts font free of charge. (c) Hans Bodlaender, 1996.
Written by: Hans Bodlaender. With thanks to Alastair Scott for letting
me use his gif-file of my Chess Utrecht font, and to Armando
Hernandez Marroquin for his many chess fonts that he sent me.
Thanks to Mark Brooks for sending me the Chess Utrecht font in Mac-format.
