Well, all right, maybe the Editors will let me get away with another
'Excellent' if I point out that I've studied this set with considerable
care in the last couple of days, and noted a few more of its merits, such
a. It is a large, fairly comprehensive set, and an inspirational 
foundation upon which others have built, to great effect
b. Piece-moves and names are clearly described next to icons
c. Icons are all readily distinguishable, if not all readily identifiable
(I finally deduced that the Hunter is a drawn bow and arrow, pointing
upwards, and the heraldic ones must be memorized)
d. I have learned a lot in these exchanges, some of which I'll pass on to
the next thread.
Big Smilie.
