One minor(?) point. In my written rules as displayed by the preset I still call a Caliph a Flying Dragon (another standard name for it), as on my rules page for Butterfly Chess. So I still showed a picture of a dragon in the displayed rules - but the Applet may insist on using a standard Caliph figurine (bishop+camel compound generated by Alfaerie piece sets) in any [preset] diagram [during play], I suppose it's possible (speaking as a layman), as the Applet abbreviates Caliph with a C in the coding as well as its offered FEN.

edit: I think I vaguely know what to do to get a dragon figurine from the applet, since it is (fortunately in this case) in the Applet's piece figurine table. It would involve substituting a dragon from the table for a caliph, somehow. Note that on my laptop, I couldn't see the table's sidebar to scroll by, unless I reduced my screen view by going [ctrl -] to get it to 90% factor (from normal 100%). It may also be the Applet can still use a standard Caliph symbol, and then I could have somehow substituted a dragon for it in my preset's diagram for during play - if I can wrap my head around how Fergus (or maybe H.G.) have already maybe explained well enough elsewhere.
